The Law Library employs law student reference assistants to assist law faculty with their research needs. These law students provide support for law faculty who either do not have enough ongoing work to justify hiring their own research assistants or need assistance beyond their own research assistants. The reference assistants are meant to complement, not replace, individual faculty research assistants. The reference assistants work primarily on research requests
In addition to providing research support to law school faculty, the reference assistants also provide reference services to library users virtually and at the reference desk on the main floor of the Law Library.
