Chat reference is operational during the same hours that reference librarians and GRAs staff the reference desk. Patrons can access the chat reference box on the left side of the Law Library homepage. Chat reference is designed to assist library users with brief research questions, such as how to find information on a particular topic using the library’s online catalog or electronic resources. More complex questions, such as those requiring in-depth knowledge of a subject or resource, may require the librarian to suggest an alternative method of communication, such as an in-person reference appointment. For more information on Chat Reference, refer to the Chat Reference Policy on the Policies page.
The phone number for the reference desk is (404) 413-9102.
Patrons need to purchase a Guest Copy Card from the copy room in the Law Library in order to print from the research stations or make copies in the copy room. The machine only accepts cash. Copy cards are $1 each. After purchasing the card, patrons must load additional money onto the card for printing. Printing is $0.05 per page. Copying costs $0.08 per page.
Patrons may also scan documents using our KIC Bookeye 4 Scanners. Scanned documents can be emailed or saved to a USB drive.
