Episode 29 – A Primer on the Law Libraries
The Judicial Branch has twelve Law Libraries, which are run by a staff of expert librarians who are there to help members of the bar and the public. In this episode of Calendar Call, Mike talks with Christopher Roy, who is the law librarian in the New Britain Judicial District Law Library. The work of a law librarian now is largely about curating the enormous amount of information that is available to the public through not only the books resources, but the online resources as well.
In addition to the resources available at the law libraries are the resources on the website. The librarians curate a blog, which covers new Supreme and Appellate opinions, updates to research guides and the Connecticut Law Journal. The librarians also produce about 80 legal research guides, which are updated annually.
