Personal Librarian

The Personal Librarian Program provides each first-year law student with a single point of contact in the Law Library.

Personal librarians will answer library questions, assist with locating library materials, and provide email updates about library events and resources.

What can my personal librarian do for me?

As a first-year law student, your personal librarian can:

  • provide a personalized tour of library resources
  • help strategize when you're starting or stuck on a research assignment

  • answer questions about library policies and procedures, including how to find books and articles at SLU and other partner libraries

Later, you can ask your personal librarian to:

  • show you how to stay up to date in areas of law that interest you
  • help with research strategies for seminar papers and journal notes
  • help get you started on research assignments from work
  • answer any other research or library-related questions during your time at SLU LAW

Do I have to use my personal librarian?

How much or how little you make of the Personal Librarian Program is entirely up to you. We will be here if and when you have questions or need help. You also should feel free to ask anyone in the library for assistance, not just the personal librarians. We are all here to help you succeed.

Who are the personal librarians?

You should receive emails periodically from your personal librarian. Contact Prof. Kathleen Casey if you do not know who your personal librarian is.
