research and reference service
Experienced professional law librarians will help you find the answers and materials you need. They will telephone or send information to you. E-mail inquiries to: email@example.com. We do not send material via email.
Legal information materials
Any published materials in the collection can be sent to you via fax, email or postal mail. Costs are 50 cents per page (photocopies) plus postage and $1.25 per page (fax/email). Photocopies are mailed only to individuals outside of the New Orleans metropolitan area. There is a $5 minimum charge.
Westlaw, Lexis and other online research
Librarians with degrees in both law and library science and with extensive online research experience will take your requests by telephone, perform your search, and mail, fax or email the results to you. Westlaw is available for use in the library at no charge. Databases include all states and federal primary legal material, Louisiana Civil Law treatises, West's Louisiana Practice Series, law review, ALR, and many treatises. Westlaw searches performed by the reference librarians in these databases are billed at $25 per search, plus $.50 per page for printing. Lexis services, and Westlaw research in other databases, are billed beginning at $9.00 per online minute, plus printing at $.04 per line.
