Reference Assistance

Reference librarians are available to provide research assistance to students working on their AWR during Reference Hours. These highly trained librarians regularly answers a wide variety of questions from the most basic to the more advanced. Students often seek help in choosing and using the proper database or finding the right book. But a large percentage of queries are more advanced and require extensive knowledge of the Law Library’s eDatabases and collections. These questions can involve limiting searches to scholarly research or peer-reviewed publications or locating that most esoteric bibliographic reference from the 1700’s.  

In-Depth Research Assistance:  

For in-depth research assistance, reference librarians are available by appointment for one-on-one reference consultation and instruction.  Scheduling an appointment allows librarians time to provide in-depth help with your research. If you need immediate assistance, please stop by the Reference Desk during Reference Hours, call 973-642-8861, or email

Email Assistance:

For the more intricate questions, you can also email your question to  The reference email account is monitored by reference librarians Monday - Friday, and they try to responds in a timely fashion.  

Telephone Assistance:

Reference librarians also answer questions over the telephone.   Please feel free to contact us at 973-642-8861 for remote access navigation and other quick questions.  Please remember, however, that the person in the Law Library comes first; we may be away from the phone helping another patron.
