Legislative Research Librarians Staff Section

Word Cloud for LRLThe Legislative Research Librarians Staff Section (LRL) is one of NCSL's 11 professional staff organizations. LRL was established to:

  • Provide a forum for discussion on legislative research and library services.
  • Improve operations and procedures for legislative libraries.
  • Enhance the professional development of legislative librarians.

LRL annually sponsors programs at NCSL’s Legislative Summit, periodically holds seminars for legislative librarians, and regularly presents webinars on professional skills development.
