Reference Services

Reference Services

Four librarians provide reference and research services to the VLS community and, to a lesser extent, the public. We can help you identify useful materials to answer any research question, no matter how large or small, help you develop information-gathering strategies and techniques, and help you evaluate your results. Librarians provide reference assistance Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 5:00 and Saturday from 10AM-2PM. You may also schedule an appointment for individual assistance by email. We also offer individual and group instruction in legal research.

Access Services

Book circulation, stack maintenance, reserves, and inter-library loan are among the library services offered through the access services department. Please read the Interlibrary Loan Policy to learn more about inter-library loan process and policy, or request a book or article. The Access Services Department also coordinates reserving study carrels for eligible students.
