Barco Law Library: Virtual Help Desk

Barco law librarians are available to help you find the legal information you need.   We  can find law books or articles, recommend online or print resources, and direct  your research when you're not sure where to start.   We provide these reference services to faculty, students, alumni, staff, and anyone engaged in legal research.  

Online Help via E-Mail
