Faculty Resources: Writing & Research

Law Library resources to support faculty research

Borrowing Items

Law School faculty may borrow books for up to a year, and renew them if necessary by contacting Janissa Moore.

To borrow materials from other libraries across the country through interlibrary loan, contact Jerome Neukirch.

Research Assistance

The Faculty Research Assistance Program provides Law School faculty with up to 10 hours of student research assistance on any research project. All work is overseen by Will Hilyerd, who coordinates the program.

If you already have a research assistant, librarians can also arrange individualized training with that student. This will ensure that your assistant begins researching with the most efficient and effective resources for the topic at hand.
