The Library is here to help during your time as a research assistant for a law professor.
Get to Know Your Faculty Member's Library Liaison
If you have questions about resources and legal research strategies, feel free to get in touch with your law professor's library liaison. Each professor here at the law school has a library liaison who may be familiar with that faculty member's research interests and can help you with your research.
In addition to your faculty member's library liaison, there are other highly trained, specialized librarians you are welcome to contact for assistance:
The Library facilitates your checking out materials on behalf of the professor for whom you work. (Never check out items for a professor in your own name as you will be responsible for any fines that accrue. Faculty members also have the advantage of longer check-out periods.)

Photocopying: Copy Card for RAs
If you need to make photocopies for a law professor of materials at Tarlton or at any of the UT Libraries, Tarlton's circulation desk has a copy card that you can use to cover the cost. Ask for the RA copy card at Tarlton's circulation desk for you to log it out and then log it back in with the remaining balance. (To log it out, your professor must have already had your name added to his or her Tarlton patron record.)
