MacMillan Reference Collection

Using the Virtual Reference Desk

MacMillan’s Virtual Reference Desk is open Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, 9 a.m. to noon. The reference desk is staffed by members of MacMillan’s Research Services team, who all hold JD and MSLIS degrees. They have been through law school and know exactly what you are experiencing. You can ask them anything from “What resources should I start with when researching this topic?” to  “What is the best way to study for my torts exam?”
All you need to do is jump on Zoom  (Zoom Meeting ID: 930 5184 4067) to meet live with an expert in legal research.
