Ask A Law Librarian

Reference librarians will research and  respond via email to requests that can be answered briefly and are of a legal, legislative, or governmental nature. We check for incoming requests throughout the day and generally respond within three working days. Maine requests are given priority. For requests coming from out-of-state we supply only Maine-related information. If you have a lengthy or involved request please consider contacting the library at :

Maine State Law and Legislative Reference Library

Some questions can only be answered by photocopying or lending materials and sending them via mail, fax, or FedEx. In that case service and copy charges may apply, as well as various lending policies.  Before we can send you photocopies we need your consent to be invoiced. Please check the permission box below.
