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).

The library research assistants are supervised by the Faculty Services librarian, Gail Mathapo.  To inquire about research assistant availability and possible projects, please contact Gail 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.

  • 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.
