Navigating Legal Reference: Support and Resources From the State Law Library

Public librarians are often a trusted source of information on subjects that have a huge impact on patrons’ lives. This can include aspects of everyday life that intersect with the law, like landlord disputes, child custody issues, gun ownership, end-of-life planning, and more. If you are a public librarian with little experience researching what the law says, you may feel nervous about how to answer patrons’ questions about the law without veering into legal advice. This presentation from the State Law Library about the many free resources they offer will help build your confidence in providing legal information to patrons and help you know when to refer them to another entity that can provide the help they need.

Presented by Texas State Law Library Assistant Director Amy Small and Web Content and Reference Librarian Laura Gienger
