Where can I find the case Simpson v. Satterfield? What are the laws in Nevada on gun ownership? Can you help me apply for a business license? How do I copyright my name? Questions like these make a new law librarian s head spin. The truth is, all librarians are apt to get legal questions, and most struggle to respond. Collection development, too, is tricky if you seldom work with legal publishers.
As the law touches more and more of our daily lives while lawyers price their services out of the average person s range, the public increasingly turns to libraries for answers. Where can librarians turn? Okay, that one s easy to Anthony Aycock s The Accidental Law Librarian.

Since 2010, Anthony Aycock has managed the library of the North Carolina Justice Academy, a nationally accredited law enforcement training facility in eastern North Carolina. Before that, he was the head of access services at the Charlotte School of Law Library in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has also been a librarian in law firms, a corporate legal department, and at various public libraries.
Anthony has published essays and articles in the Missouri Review, Gettysburg Review, Creative Nonfiction, ONLINE, Library Journal, National Paralegal Reporter, and Community & Junior College Libraries, and holds a BA in English, an MLIS, and an MFA in creative writing. From 1992 to 2000, Anthony worked as a McDonald s restaurant manager. He has only two things to say about that career: 1) Big Mac sauce is not Thousand Island dressing; and 2) the next time you use a drive-through in the rain, please, please, please turn off your windshield wipers at the pay window.Review:
A brilliant summary of everything a librarian should know before entering the law library profession. ... I wish this book had been around when I accidentally entered the legal library world myself. --Terry Ballard, librarian and author, Google This! Putting Google and Other Social Media Sites to Work for Your Library
Anthony Aycock has done for law librarianship what James Herriot did for veterinary practice. He brings alive the challenges of legal reference work, including the sometimes painful and often hilarious questions that arise. Whether you work in a law library or just appreciate the complexities of legal research, this book is a great read. --Virginia Tucker, Finding the Answers to Legal Questions
