About Research Help
Each of Loyola's 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 legal research for jobs, classes, law reviews, moots, and other school activities.
For faculty, reference librarians are happy to support research and teaching by retrieving books, articles, and legal documents; obtaining access to databases; compiling bibliographies; establishing email alerts for news, journals, and cases; training research assistants; and guest lecturing.
