Research Assistant Training
The UF Legal Lawton Chiles Information Center retains at least one student research assistant each semester to work on small, discrete faculty research projects. Library research assistants work on projects that are small enough that it does not make sense for the faculty member to hire their own research assistant or the faculty member has too much work for their current research assistant(s). Library research assistant labor is billed to faculty PDAs at the normal research assistant rate.
The library research assistants are supervised by the Head of Research & Instruction, Todd Venie. To inquire about research assistant availability and possible projects, please contact Todd or your liaison.
Faculty Research Assistant Training
The librarians at the UF Lawton Chiles Legal Information Center are happy to assist in training research assistants and provide research assistance for their faculty projects. In order to provide the best training possible, we will need to know:
- What the project entails
- If there are specific resources that you would like utilized
- What type of results you are looking for
To schedule research assistant training, please contact your library liaison.
You may set up proxy borrower privileges which will allow another person to check books out on your account and pick up materials requested from other libraries. To set this up:
- You or the person you want to serve as your proxy may pick up a Proxy Borrower Form from the front desk in the library.
- Complete the form and sign it.
- Return the form to Circulation Assistant Elisa O’Malley at the library’s front desk.
- Upon verification, you will be issued a Proxy Borrower Card that you can provide to your proxy borrower.
