Ray Jassin is President and Director of Library Services of Law Library Management, Incorporated. He began his career in law libraries as a clerk in the library of Cravath, Swaine & Moore in 1964. From there, he gained administrative and reference skills as a library assistant for the library of Cahill, Gordon, & Reindel and working as a paralegal at Queens Legal Services, Corp. He broadened his knowledge base during 3 1/2 years at Grey Advertising as Chief Librarian. He then spent 5 years at the Reference Desk of the library of The Association of the Bar of the City of New York where he gained in depth knowledge of legal resources under the tutelage of one of the top legal reference librarians, Anthony P. Grech. The Association afforded Ray with the exposure needed to begin his own entrepreneurial venture as well, starting Law Library Management, Incorporated. Seeing an underserved need, namely, firms that didn't need the standard service model, Ray set out to develop other ways to offer professional library services to law firms and corporate legal departments. He took Law Library Management, Incorporated from server housed software applications, to web based library management software, as an Intuit QuickBase Developer. Ray holds membership in the American Association of Law Libraries, Special Libraries Association and Association of Independent Information Professionals (founding member/former member). Since 1982 Ray has been the President and Director of Library services for all client libraries and is responsible for the management of all personnel and work product of the company.
