Retirement Reveals Split in Copyright World Over Librarian of Congress Billington’s Legacy


James Moran, speaking both as a former Congressman and past employee at the Library of Congress, praised retiring Librarian of Congress James Billington, saying that Billington “has blessed this nation for 28 years by serving as our librarian of Congress, and, except for perhaps some of the very earliest librarians, I think Jim has been the finest librarian that this nation has ever had at the helm of the Library of Congress.”
