Reference services are primarily for students, faculty, staff, alumni and other members of the University of Chicago community. For those not affiliated with the University of Chicago, reference assistance is limited to the collections and services unique to the University of Chicago.
Reference desk hours are posted on the D'Angelo Law Library web site. During the academic year, reference librarians are available from 9:00 am to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 to 5:00 p.m. Fridays, and from noon until 4:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. You may contact a reference librarian online using our Ask a Law Librarian service or call the reference desk at (773) 702-9631.
The reference librarians are: Sheri Lewis, Library Director; Margaret Schilt, Associate Law Librarian for User Services; Lyonette Louis-Jacques, Foreign and International Law Librarian; Bill Schwesig, Bibliographer for Common Law; Thomas Drueke, Faculty Services and Scholarly Communications Librarian; Todd Ito, Coordinator of Instruction and Outreach; and Connie Fleischer, Virtual Access Librarian.
In addition to general reference service, the reference staff conducts general and specialized tours of the library, presents lectures on legal research topics, provides instruction on LexisNexis, Westlaw, Bloomberg Law, other legal resources, and arranges interlibrary loans.
For reference assistance in areas other than law, consult the list of subject specialists at other campus libraries.
