How We Learned to Love Legal Reference and You Can Too

Legal questions strike fear into the hearts of most library staff, but it doesn’t have to be that way. After years working in public libraries, the presenters shifted almost overnight to law librarianship. Our previous work prepared left us ill-prepared for legal research. We’ve discovered, though, that we don’t need to do legal research for people, we need to do legal reference. Come learn the difference between the two and leave empowered with a new ability to help your patrons along with key resources and tips to answer questions, defuse tense interactions and find people the help they need.
