Interview With Law Library of Congress Legal Reference Librarian Theresa Reiss
The most recent interview is with Theresa Reiss, Legal Reference Librarian:
Why did you want to work at the Law Library?The Law Library of Congress is the world’s largest law library, with a collection from all ages of history and virtually every jurisdiction in the world.
It may sound like a cliché, but working at the Library of Congress was a dream for me. When I began working at the Alexandria Law Library, I quickly took note of how often I referred patrons to the Law Library. I am not ashamed to admit I was envious of the Law Library’s massive collection. So, I jumped at the opportunity to work here.
What is the most interesting fact you’ve learned about the Law Library?
I am astounded at how many hidden treasures are available in the Law Library’s collection of 2.9 million volumes.
