The Harvard Law School Library seeks an experienced librarian to join our team this fall as Associate Director. The Law School celebrates its bicentennial this year. As we enter the Library’s third century we are aggressively participating in the evolution of access to information and library services.
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. More than our size, what makes us unique is our work developing and deploying services at the leading edge of librarianship. The Library Innovation Lab is actively engaged in tech development to solve for 21st century information challenges, like link rot and ensuring open access to legal information. Our Teaching Learning and Curriculum team works with faculty in the Law School’s clinics, the first year curriculum and Executive Education to design and develop case studies and other teaching tools. Our Research and Faculty Services include librarian liaisons, an empirical research team and a robust document delivery service. Our Collections team curates our general collection of over two million print and digital items, while our Historical & Special Collections team explores best practices for born digital collections. It is an exciting time at the Library and we invite you to our team!
The Associate Director works in partnership with the Executive Director and the management team as a guiding force in advancing the Library’s goals and vision. The Associate Director will have primary responsibility for our collections teams and other administrative responsibilities.

Established in 1817, Harvard Law School is the oldest continuously operating law school in the nation, but its greatest tradition is its commitment to critical analysis—of law, legal institutions, and legal education itself.
