The Oechler Reference Area houses the library's Reference Collection. Reference materials are intended for quick consultation for both legal and non-legal topics, and include encyclopedias, U.S. and foreign legal and general dictionaries, directories, citation guides, style manuals and statistical sources, state legal research guides, indexes to legal periodical literature, general sources on significant topics or cases in American law, U.S. Supreme Court data, biographical sources, finding tools for government documents, and standard reference sources for other disciplines. The collection also contains basic legal self-help texts intended to provide lay users with general information about common legal matters.
The area is named for alumnus Henry J. Oechler Jr. (J.D. 1971), currently Of Counsel at Chadbourne & Parke in New York.
