To Be a Law Librarian

cover of Practicing Reference

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a law librarian, or considered law librarianship as a career? We have just received a book that you should read: Practicing Reference: Thoughts for Librarians and Legal Researchers by Mary Whisner. You can find it in the law library at Z 675 .L2 W495 2006 or purchase it online. (The author arranged with the publisher to make it available to students at a reduced price.)

Mary Whisner is Assistant Librarian for Reference Services at the M.G. Gallagher Law Library, University of Washington. She was one of the law librarians who trained me when I attended the UW Law Librarianship program. She is also author of the Trial Ad Notes blog and of the "Practicing Reference" column in Law Library Journal.
