Alert! You can now text the law librarians!

If you’re like me, you would much prefer to send a text than make a call or send an email. It’s less formal, quicker, and more convenient. If you are also like me, then you’ve probably gotten stuck multiple times while doing legal research and wished you could send a quick message to get some help. Well, wish no more, because the law librarians are now available for questions via text. 

Before text-a-librarian, the BYU Law Library Reference Services were available via emailing, calling (801) 422-6658, making an appointment directly with a law librarian, or walking up to the Reference Desk in person. Now, access to your local research experts has become even easier through our new texting feature. 

Any research or library question can be texted to (801) 422-3596. During traditional business hours, there is almost always a reference assistant or librarian available to answer questions about legal research.

Librarians and reference assistants are eager to help with any and all research questions you may have, so feel free to reach out through texting, calling, emailing or stopping by the Reference Desk in-person!
