Barry University School of Law Library: Reference

The official website of the Barry University School of Law Library

Reference Services

The Barry Law Library employs Reference Librarians who hold Juris Doctors in addition to Master's degrees in Library and Information Science. They all have professor status as well, and teach their own Advanced Legal Research classes and guest-lecture on research methods in other professors' classes.

We cannot give legal advice, but we can always guide you toward resources to answer your questions and hopefully solve your problems.

Reference Hours

Virtual Service

Monday - Thursday 9 a.m. - 8 p.m.
Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday - Sunday Appointment only

In-person Service

Please email for an in-person reference appointment.


The best way to contact the librarians with reference or research questions is to email or text, a shared email account that allows them all to receive messages.

Barry Law students may also fill out a Personal Research Consultation (PERC) form to request a session with a Reference Librarian.
