Reference assistance is available at the User Services Desk located at the library entrance. Law students may also work with research librarians on extensive or complicated projects and consult with them on strategies for researching seminar paper topics or other research problems. The research librarians have specialized knowledge of various legal subject areas, including health, environmental, foreign and international, and business law. They also can assist with research projects that reach beyond legal sources.
The library's team of experienced law-trained librarians teaches the required research courses, in addition to working with students and faculty on research projects. These courses include an introduction to legal research, taught to first-year students during the spring semester, and advanced legal research, offered in the fall. Advanced research courses are offered in several legal subject areas, including environmental, business, health, federal and Maryland law. In addition, law librarians serve as liaisons to courses taught at the law school.
