Spotlight on Carol Humphries

When you visit the library on Monday mornings, you are likely to see Carol Humphries at the Circulation Desk. Carol has worked for the Law Library since early 2007 as the Cataloging Assistant, adding new items to our collection, pulling superseded volumes, and generally improving the resources in our online catalog, GAVEL. This year she agreed to expand her responsibilities by assisting a couple of hours each week at our Circulation Desk.

Carol is an active member of the Law School Staff Council and of several Law Library-specific teams. When you see Carol at the desk or on her rounds, let her know if you have ideas or suggestions about the appearance of the Library. You’ll also see her at the Law Library’s Book Repair Clinic on the last day of classes each semester.

Carol is also an avid supporter of the UGA Women’s soccer team and the Lady Bulldogs’ basketball team.

 New Career and Professional Resources Collection: Use It!

We are excited to provide you with a new, conveniently-located, special collection of resources collected with the goal of assisting you in your job search.

Check out our new "Career and Professional Resources Collection" on the main floor under the window looking into the Copy Room.

In our online catalog, GAVEL, the location will appear as "Career & Professional Resources (Main Floor)" in an item's record.
