Reference librarians are available to help direct patrons to information that may answer their questions or aid in their research. Be advised that library policy prohibits reference librarians from doing research for patrons or answering specific legal questions; however, librarians can direct patrons to relevant sources and give instruction on their use. The full-time reference librarians are also responsible for teaching and conducting the legal research classes offered at the law school.
The Reference Desk is located on the main floor of the Library. The Reference Department is staffed by both full-time librarians and part-time student reference assistants. When school is in session, reference assistance is available Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m. to 9 p.m and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. During the summer months, reference assistance is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Reference librarians are also available for additional assistance by appointment and may be contacted by telephone at (801) 422-6658.
