To request research support, use the Faculty Request Portal, a simple and reliable method to initiate and track the progress of requests for assistance. Sign in using your UNM law username and password (the same one used to sign in to the law school network), and the request will be routed to the appropriate individual in the Library.
Book and Article Delivery
Books and articles will be quickly delivered to faculty offices or mailboxes if the material is available in the Law Library or at other libraries on campus. If it is not available on campus, the Library will determine the best means to obtain the title and deliver it when it arrives. You will receive timely and regular updates on the progress of these efforts.
Citation Assistance (Bluebooking)
The Library provides research assistance to identify or verify credible supportive evidence for propositions made in scholarly work.
For assistance formatting citations according to Bluebook (or other) citation rules, contact Kyran Worrell, 277-0680 or Cheryl Burbank, 277-0609 from the Faculty Support Tech Team.
Current Awareness Alerts
Faculty members can receive email notice of news alerts, new scholarship, Shepard’s and Keycite reports for primary authority, etc.
Research Assistant Training
The librarians are happy to train and consult with faculty RAs so that they can provide more efficient, focused support; are aware of potentially relevant databases and resources; or to provide them with a review session on research processes.
Research Database Access
All but a few of the databases licensed by the Library can be accessed off-site by using the links on the Library’s web page then entering a law school user name and password. To access databases from the webpage of another UNM library, sign in requires a UNM/Banner username and password.
