We select and organize legal information to help ensure that the USF law school community has access to relevant legal and interdisciplinary information. We invest our resources and expertise in selecting library materials that allow us to fully support the curricular and research needs of the USF law community. Our seven full-time professional law librarians instruct students, faculty, and staff in practical legal research strategy. We strive to provide a supportive and flexible atmosphere that balances community and study.
