How to Get Help

Ask a Law Librarian

Professional dual-degreed librarians (law and library science) are available to assist students and faculty with the location of information and efficient use of print and electronic resources. The Law Library provides reference services via email, text, phone, and by appointment. Please note that the librarians are not permitted to give legal advice. In addition, many questions require detailed research in the library and are not within the scope of this service.

Email

Patrons may contact members of the Law Library reference staff directly through the Law Library Directory. Reference staff check their email daily, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and vacation periods. You may expect a reply to your question within 1 business day from the time a librarian receives it.

Patrons may contact the Law Library reference desk by text at 919-530-6715. The chat service is checked regularly, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and vacation periods. You may expect a reply to your question within one business day of the time a librarian receives it.
