From the Tarlton Law Library: Are you working as a research assistant (RA) for a law school professor this year?  Are you interested in working as an RA in the future?  Do you want to brush up on your research skills, even if you are not an RA?  To help you hit the ground running, the Tarlton Law Library is offering special research training for law students who are or may be RAs.  All students are welcome to attend.  The class is scheduled for Friday, October 14 at 1:00 p.m. in Tarlton’s Computer Learning Center on the library’s third floor.

The Library will explain research techniques for resources most requested by faculty, including how to find e-journals and link directly to their text though our TALLONS catalog and how to find electronic journals and databases that are offered through the UT General Libraries.  They will also go over administrative details like how to check out materials for faculty from various UT libraries and how to request an item from interlibrary loan.  And they will be available to answer any questions you may have about library research, whether for yourself or your faculty member.

To reserve your spot, please RSVP to Melissa Bernstein at mbernstein@law.utexas.edu.

Please check the job bank on UT Law Symplicity to find available RA positions with UT Law, McCombs and/or LBJ School professors.
