A Law Faculty Research Assistant's Survival Guide

by Tove Klovning

Introduction

As a Faculty Research Assistant (RA), you will be called upon to find and supply copious amounts of materials to your faculty member.  This libguide will introduce you to library services that may be helpful to you as a RA. These services include copying materials, proxy borrowing for your faculty member, interlibrary loan procedure, as well as, research and reference assistance.  If you have any questions about the information in this libguide, please feel free to stop by my office (AB 455J), or contact me via email at tklovni@wulaw.wustl.edu

Research is a large part of any RA’s job.  The librarians on staff at the law library are more than happy to discuss research strategies or advise you on different sources.  There are no silly questions!  Please feel free to stop by the reference desk or any of the librarians’ offices during normal working hours.  You may also send an email to reference@wulaw.wustl.edu or contact a reference librarian directly.
