The American Law Division of the Congressional Research Service (CRS) is seeking a Law Librarian to support the work of the United States Congress.
The Law Librarian is responsible for providing legal reference and information research services to congressional clients, legislative attorneys, and policy analysts; developing search techniques and files for handling specific types of requests; searching Library of Congress, CRS, and external electronic resources in response to requests for information; examining publications, electronic resources, and trends in a variety of areas; developing knowledge of collections for use in performing research tasks; and assisting with the creation and maintenance of databases, web pages, collaborative tools, and other information systems.
CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS is a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill.
CRS is well known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has immediate access to the nation's best thinking on public policy issues of interest to its Members and Committees.
