If you have questions about any electronic service that we offer
If you need help finding a textbook

We have years of experience with print and online resources.  We can quickly and efficiently find the best textbook or journal article, trace a statute section or note-up a case. Please keep in mind that as librarians we are not legally trained so we cannot give legal opinions.
