The Law Library Reference Desk (in Main Reading Room) is staffed by a rotation of librarians, and the librarian who assisted with a footnote at a first stage edit may not be there when you bring the same footnote to the Desk at a later stage. Sharing information saves time and avoids frustration. If possible, bring the complete article text and footnotes when you come to the Library. Context often helps to identify a source, and text and footnotes not assigned to you may be helpful for your footnotes.
Reference Desk Services Hours: Monday-Thursday, 9:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.; Friday, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday, 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. (when classes are in session)
