Many academic [law] libraries serve a variety of patrons beyond the law school community. How does your library support alumni, self-represented litigants and the legal community?

  • Any innovative programming?
  • Specialized instruction?
  • Outreach?
  • Reference and research consultation availability?
  • Remote access to databases?
    • Which ones?
    • Legal research training/instruction?
  • Access to Justice considerations:
    • What services are we providing to Self-Represented Litigants (SRL)?
  • Legal community:

Michigan law librarians have an exceptionally cooperative working relationship – we are ‘better together.’
