RCLL Online Reference Service Request Form

Important Notes:

- Reference Librarians cannot give legal advice. For information about legal reference vs legal advice go here https://www.rclawlibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/Legal_Advice_Information_20190529.pdf 

- Reference Librarians strive to meet a high volume of reference service requests and assist with research in a timely manner. For this reason, our librarians may not have adequate time to perform in-depth legal research for you, especially during periods when high numbers of requests come in.

- Research requests that provide specific citations, or requests from patrons who fill out all fields and/or provide complete information on this form, will be given priority.
