Abstract

This paper contains the results of an empirical analysis and review of the 200 American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law school library web pages to evaluate communication of library services with law school faculty. The top 11 library websites were identified using criteria such as research support staffing, publishing support, teaching support, and research services. Additionally, library research services, research support staffing, publishing support, and teaching support were evaluated across all 200 schools. Suggestions for best practices are included.
