Resources for Research Assistants

How We Can Help

The Teaching & Research librarians are available to consult with you on your work as a research assistant. While each faculty member has an assigned Library Liaison assigned as their main contact point in the library, you can reach out to any available member of the Teaching & Research team. We can help you to conduct efficient and accurate research by:

  • Advising on research strategy
  • Recommending databases
  • Providing training on unfamiliar legal sources or databases 

Other type of help T&R can provide includes:

  • Locating hard to find resources
  • Constructing effective searches
  • Recommending secondary sources 
  • Database selection
  • Answering questions on the interlibrary loan process
