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 & Legislative Reference Library
