With 58 full-time staff and a collection of over 2 million items, the Harvard Law School Library is the largest academic law library in the world. Our collection includes scholarship and primary legal materials from jurisdictions around the world. More than our size, what makes us unique is our work developing and deploying services at the leading edge of librarianship. Our Research and Faculty Services teams include librarian liaisons, an empirical research team, and a robust document delivery service. Research librarians have the opportunity to develop relationships with Harvard Law School’s smart, diverse, and vibrant population of students, faculty, clinics, and journals and to promote Harvard Law School’s mission to contribute “to the advancement of justice and the well-being of society.” It is an exciting time at the Library and we invite you to join our team!
The Research Librarian works under the direction of the Manager of Research Services and alongside a dedicated team of 8 research librarians and a research assistant. The Research Librarian provides research support to faculty, staff, and students in law and law-related disciplines. Experience or interest in foreign, comparative and international law research is a plus. The Research Librarian may participate in library, law school, and university projects and teams to advance the Library’s goals and vision.
