In Read This on June 23, 2014 at 7:55 pm

A regular question at Schmid Law Library is, “are you open to the public?” YES! We are a public law library open to anyone who wants to use the law library for legal research.

A helpful guide for Pro Se users is available here from our Schmid Law Library in a Nutshell LibGuide. It includes information on finding legal forms, Reference assistance, links to helpful Nebraska legal websites and a useful FAQ for visitors on parking, public computer use, WiFi and public Westlaw access.

The librarians at Schmid Law Library provide Reference assistance Monday – Friday from 8AM – 5PM, please call a reference librarian at (402) 472-3548 for details on library services. We look forward to assisting with your legal reference and research needs.
