Research Assistant Training & Support

The research librarians are available to offer training and research consultations to your research assistants. Consulting with a librarian usually saves the RAs time and ensures that faculty members receive quality research results. Please have your RA contact your liaison to arrange a training or research consultation. Please notify your liaison of your research assistant hires so that we can off them out assistance.

At the beginning of each summer, the library will offer training for all faculty research assistants to enhance their legal research skills. The program will highlight efficient research techniques, citation, and will include advanced Westlaw and LexisNexis training sessions.

You may authorize your research assistant to obtain library materials on your library record. You can print and complete the Research Assistant Authorization Form (PDF)or have your research assistant pick up the form at the library service desk.
