Legal Research for the Non-Law Librarian

Join the Supreme Court Law Library staff as we discuss basic legal research for all librarians.  We will talk about how Ohio laws, both statutes and regulations, operate and how to help patrons coming into your library.  Discover how the Supreme Court Law Library can help you and enjoy a tour of the historic Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center.  Our presenters are Marissa Mason, Research Librarian, and Erin Waltz, Public Service Manager, of the Supreme Court of Ohio Law Library.

Marissa Mason provides research and reference services to the Justices and court staff, state agencies, attorneys, and the general public. An upstate New York native, she previously worked for the New York State Court of Appeals Library and the Albany Public Library. Marissa holds a B.A. in English from the College of Saint Rose and an M.S.I.S. from the University of Albany.

Before coming to the Supreme Court, Erin Waltz was the Research Librarian at Bricker & Eckler LLP and the Ohio Attorney General’s office. Erin is now the Past President and Webmaster of the Central Ohio Chapter for the Special Libraries Association and a member of the Columbus Bar Association, the Ohio Regional Association of Law Libraries, and the American Association of Law Libraries.
