Law librarians can help identify relevant legal research materials, provide instruction on effective use of resources, and provide referrals to appropriate agencies or organizations. Note: library staff may not engage in the practice of law, so are prohibited from interpreting legal materials or advising patrons on their legal right. During these visits, the law librarian will provide legal reference assistance, track statistics, provide information about the Law Library to patrons, and, when appropriate, refer patrons back to the library or to legal aid or other legal service providers.
