Reference service is available to assist with questions about the collection, to help find specific legal materials, or to set up a research strategy. The reference librarians cannot give legal advice or interpretations of the law; please consult an attorney who is engaged in the practice of law for such help. Much legal research can be done electronically. Reference librarians are available to give help and instruct in the use of online sources. Help is also available in areas requiring extra research skills such as legislative histories, administrative law, and international law. To contact the reference desk, call 801-581-6184 or email
