Personal Librarian Program FAQs
What is the Personal Librarian program? Well, it's another way for you to connect with the GSU law librarians. As a new 1L, there may be times when you have a question you'd prefer not to ask your Legal Bibliography instructor ("I missed class, and I need help understanding this ...") or when they are unavailable. As a 2L or 3L, you may not have much in-class time with a librarian, so we're also available to talk to you about seminar papers, where to start on a new research assignment from work and any other questions you might have during your time at GSU.
Do you report on what we say to my other teachers? No, we don't. Your Personal Librarian is not your Legal Bib instructor. They're just someone else available to help you during law school, especially when it comes to research questions.
Do I have to come see you? Nope. It's up to you. You'll probably still get emails from your Personal Librarian from time to time though, alerting you to library news and events.
Can I still ask my Legal Bib instructor or a Reference librarian questions? Of course. Your Legal Bib instructor will probably be your first contact for class-related queries, and the Reference desk is there precisely so someone is available to help answer research questions. Your Personal Librarian's primary job is to keep you updated on what's happening in the library, but can help with your other inquiries too.
