Interview With Law Library of Congress Legal Reference Librarian Theresa Reiss

In Custodia Legis, the blog of the Law Library of Congress in Washington, has been running an interview series featuring members of the library staff. The series started in late October 2010.

The most recent interview is with Theresa Reiss, Legal Reference Librarian:
Why did you want to work at the Law Library?
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.
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.
