Hi Katherine, I enjoyed reading your post. It was interesting the Law Library where you worked still operates in a more traditional way, I imagine as law often relies upon precedents that print books are still heavily relied upon. I often see lawyers and their assistants carrying reams of paper and books when I am walking past the courts. I agree that virtual reference services, level the playing field for external students. I studied externally about 20 years ago and I really struggled to get access to resources, eventually having to subscribe to a medical database at significant expense.
