Increasingly, as one colleague recently remarked, "[l]aw school libraries across the nation ... have either hired or actively sought to hire an empirical research librarian, often a MLS holding librarian with a masters or Ph.D. in one of the social sciences, to assist law professors with data retrieval and analysis." Such law libraries include: University of Texas, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, Fordham, to name but a few. I know that I benefit from tremendous research and library support at Cornell (and am grateful for it). I'd be interested in hearing from others about what ELS-specific library research support they receive or would like to receive.
Finally, to this end, I want to draw those interested to Fordham Law School Library's current search for a Reference Librarian/Empirical Research Specialist. Those interested should contact the Head of Reference, Karin Johnsrud, at email@example.com
UPDATE: Loyal ELS Blog readers noted that opportunities exist at more than the Fordham Law School Library for a specialist in empirical legal studies. Duke Law School's library is also actively looking for an Empirical Research Associate (see job posting at: http://www.law.duke.edu/jobs/index). Those interested should contact Richard Danner directly (at: firstname.lastname@example.org).
