Research Help

Each of Loyola's six reference librarians has both a J.D. and a master's degree in librarianship and is available to provide research help to students, alumni, and faculty. 

For students and alumni, reference librarians are happy to suggest the best books, databases, and strategies to complete class assignments, law review assignments, and projects for work.

For faculty, reference librarians are happy to support research and teaching by retrieving books, articles, and legal documents; obtaining access to databases; compiling bibliographies; training research assistants; and guest lecturing.
