In the Justice Management Division (JMD) of the Department of Justice (DOJ), library staff provides research and information management to senior leadership, including the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, Associate Attorney General, Solicitor General, and Assistant Attorneys General for the six litigating divisions. In addition, the JMD library staff supports and collaborates with other DOJ component libraries (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Drug Enforcement Administration; Federal Bureau of Investigation; Federal Bureau of Prisons; and United States Attorneys’  Offices) to provide for the research needs of approximately 115,000 DOJ employees. The JMD library staff specializes in general and legal research,

congressional and legislative research, expert witness research, and legal research training for DOJ attorneys and paralegals.
