Reference Services @ Pence Law Library: Home

Reference Services

Reference librarians are available to help all students with research questions and projects. Reference librarians can help you locate an individual source or provide research assistance for in-depth research projects. We're available for drop-in questions and longer research consultations by appointment. If you spend more than 15 minutes looking for something, ask a reference librarian!
