Interview With Legal Reference Specialist at Law Library of Congress

In Custodia Legis, the blog of the Law Library of Congress in Washington, has started an interview series featuring members of the library staff.

Today, the eighth interview in the series appeared. It is with Debora Keysor, Legal Reference Specialist:
"What is the most interesting fact you’ve learned about the Law Library of Congress?: The sheer volume of government documents that are received and maintained in the Law Library, including, but not limited to, more than 5,000 U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs each term and, more than 10,000 congressional bills and resolutions each year. In addition, the Law Library of Congress has worked on a hearings pilot project to digitize congressional committee hearings from the Library of Congress collection, which includes over 75,000 volumes of printed hearings. The project’s ultimate goal is to provide free permanent public access to this valuable collection of federal legislative documents. To this end, I was intensely involved in the hearings pilot project to compile three collections: census, privacy, and immigration."
