The Accidental Law Librarian

Where can I find the case Simpson v. Satterfield? What are the laws in Nevada on gun ownership? Can you help me apply for a business license? How do I copyright my name? Questions like these can make a new law librarian’s head spin. The truth is, all librarians are apt to get legal questions, and most struggle to respond. Collection development, too, is tricky if you seldom work with legal publishers.

As the law touches more and more of our daily lives while lawyers price their services out of the average person's range, the public increasingly turns to libraries for guidance. This presentation will cover the basics of legal research, how to interpret legal questions, and where to send patrons for answers.

Presented by Anthony Aycock, North Carolina Legislative Librarian and author of The Accidental Law Librarian.
