One of the most important missions of the John Marshall Law Library is to serve the research and instructional needs of our faculty.
Each full-time faculty member is teamed with a reference librarian who has both a J.D. and a Masters degree in Information Science. This librarian serves as that faculty member’s point of contact with the library and can frequently assist with research projects. If you are a full-time faculty member and aren’t sure who is your liaison is, send an email to library [at] @jmls[.]edu or call Claire Toomey Durkin, x560.
Librarians help faculty with ongoing research needs including online database training, including Lexis/Westlaw, HeinOnline, BNA, RIA, CCH, and JSTOR; and literature searches (articles, books, etc.). For research support, contact your liaison or the reference desk at x729.
Library Research Fellows help faculty prepare articles for publication, including: finding sources, cite-checking, and Bluebooking citations. For citation support, contact Raizel Liebler, x430, 8Liebler [@]jmls [.]edu.
