Abstract

I have been a professional law librarian for seventeen years, and this is my third academic law library directorship at Boston University School of Law's Fineman & Pappas Law Libraries. BU is the fourth-largest private university in the United States and the nation's third-largest private urban university. The law school is highly ranked and regarded, and the law library serves a talented and prolific faculty, a J.D. enrollment of about 700, and a robust cohort of LL.M. students many from outside the U.S. My contribution to this compilation attempts to illuminate the varied and often unexpected duties performed by a modern academic law library director.

Keywords: law library,professional law librarian,law librarianship, law library directorship
