The Harvard Law School Library seeks an experienced research librarian, with experience or interest in business and corporate law preferred, to join our team. 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. 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 and teaches in both formal and informal settings including the Legal Research and Writing program. The research librarian may participate in library, law school, and university projects and teams to advance the Library’s goals and vision.

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.
