Reference librarians are available to help patrons locate information and to provide assistance in legal research methodology. However, they do not perform research for patrons and may not provide substantive legal advice or interpret legal materials for the benefit of patrons.
All reference librarians at Tarlton Law Library have Masterís degrees in Information Science; many have J.D. degrees as well. Several of our reference librarians specialize in certain subjects and can recommend appropriate print and electronic resources. Additionally, we have librarians dedicated to managing collections and providing research assistance in the areas of foreign and international law, government documents, and rare books and special collections, generally available 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday.
