Is there a paper clip in LibreOffice like there is in MS Office? If not, how do I get it?

Do you mean the 'help' animation, if so No there is not one and I'm quite sure you can't get one. –  Chris Carter May 23 '12 at 15:43

That paper clip animation thing is ancient :p It was removed from the default Office 2003 installation and the feature got completely removed in Office 2007. It's available in LibreOffice, but only gets triggered at certain actions, and has been replaced by a light bulb since a few years ago. –  RobinJ May 23 '12 at 15:49

Clippy's ancient, he must've retired by now :p

To get help in LibreOffice, you just go to the Help menu, and choose LibreOffice Help.

The Help Agent

The Help Agent starts automatically when you are performing a task that might require some assistance. The Help Agent appears in a small window in a corner of the document. To view the help for the task, click inside the Help Agent window.
