Legal Reference Lowdown March 10, 2023

At the invitation of the Hawaii State Public Library System’s (HSPLS) Library Development Office, State Law Librarian Jenny Silbiger and Public Services Librarian Marlene Cuenco presented a brief overview of legal information as well as guidance on addressing legal questions from the public.  They did a deep dive with HSPLS librarians on navigating the legal reference interview and the differences between providing legal information vs. legal advice.  They finished the presentation with a workshop on handling and effectively answering real-life legal questions using legal information tools and resources.
