One of the most overlooked resources in a library is the professional library staff. The Law Library of Congress--the largest law library in the world--is no exception. Pictured here with me (I'm the guy on the left) are some of the professionals who make the magic happen at the Law Library of Congress.
From left to right (after me) are Robert R. Newlen (Assistant Law Librarian for Legislative and External Relations), David Mao (the Law Librarian of Congress), and Nathan Dorn (Rare Book Curator and Curator of the Magna Carta Exhibit). They were among the attendees at a recent meeting of the American Bar Association's Advisory Commission to the Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress. I was recently appointed to that Commission along with Associate Justice Samuel Alito of the U.S. Supreme Court. (Just more proof that it pays to get involved with bar associations!)
