ABSTRACT
The general public, not being aware of the nature of the legal field, does not distinguish between finding legal information and then analyzing and placing that information into a legal context. This lack of knowledge and experience contributes to setting up a scenario for confusing the services of an attorney with the services of a librarian, albeit law librarian or general reference librarian. This article discusses ways to deal with this.
