New Year, New Law Librarian of Congress

Posted by Steph Hess on January 3, 2012

Welcome to 2012!  Today marks the start of David Mao’s tenure as the Law Librarian of Congress.  Appointed Deputy Law Librarian of Congress in May 2010, Mr. Mao has served as a key member of the Law Library’s leadership team and managed the Law Library’s global legal research portfolio, including the Global Legal Information Network (GLIN). He succeeds Roberta Schaffer, the 22nd Law Librarian of Congress.

The news regarding the transition was posted by Andrew Weber who has been the Legislative Information Systems Manager at the Law Library of Congress since June 2004.  An active blogger at In Custodia Legis, Weber also supplied the text of January 2011 interview in which Mr. Mao expressed his thoughts regarding the responsibilities of the Law Librarian of Congress and described the career path he chose, which should prove to be inspirational reading for law and library school students alike who are considering becoming law librarians.
