Ask a Librarian

Reference librarians are available to help library users locate information, identify relevant resources, and develop search strategies. Please read how the reference librarians can assist and how they are unable to assist you.

We have posted the answers to some commonly asked questions about the law on our Frequently Asked Legal Questions page. We have also compiled a listing of commonly requested legal forms. Also see our self-help resources page, which includes various research guides by topic, for more online resources that can help you find the information you are seeking.

If you need help with a reference question, you may ask a librarian by any of the methods we list below.
