Law Libraries Introduce Online Interactive Resource

The State of Delaware Judicial Law Libraries are excited to announce the upcoming addition of our new webpage! The new webpage will be located on the Court website and will offer a cutting edge "Ask a Law Librarian" real-time chat option.

The Law Libraries, in conjunction with the Delaware Division of Libraries, have partnered to launch this pilot "Ask a Law Librarian" chat function for the State of Delaware. The chat will provide immediate access to a law librarian by just clicking on the chat icon. Library patrons can (anonymously or otherwise) go online through the Delaware public libraries at http://lib.de.us/askalibrarian, or directly through the Judicial Law Libraries webpage, and receive information on where to locate legal information. The project will start with limited access (a few hours of online chat time per week) and expand as the need grows. If the law librarians are not available to respond to the chat, the questions will be sent to them through email and answered within 72 hours.

The law libraries webpage will also offer important research links and information for attorneys and the general public, including online tutorials on topics such as how to research in the Delaware Code and how to do legislative history.

The webpage and chat online are scheduled to be available by November 15, 2012. Check them out!
