It used to be that library research assistants were limited to working in the library because of the permanent presence of the library’s card catalog. Now that we have HOLLIS and a wide variety of electronic resources at our fingertips, and with the help of laptops and handheld devices, library research assistants perform their research in the library, or almost anywhere and anytime they work best.
One benefit of becoming a Harvard Law School Library Research Assistant is that you are welcome to, but not required to, work inside the library. A more important benefit of becoming a HLSL Research Assistant is that you will gain experience in practicing your research skills while working on short-term research projects. This is a great job for students who want to work with a variety of faculty representing different subject areas.
Does this kind of job sound right for you? If so, you might consider applying to become part of the Harvard Law School Library’s expert team of Research Assistants. Hiring is now taking place for part-time positions for fall 2011.
Interested candidates may submit their resumes and a letter of interest to June Casey, Faculty Services Librarian, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Qualifications include completion of First Year Legal Research and Writing and basic legal research experience.
