Meet Jim Stipemaas

The Law Library is pleased to welcome Jim StipeMaas as the newest member of our Circulation Department. Jim is now the late night Circulation Assistant and Stacks Manager.You will see him roaming around the library from 5pm to 2am Sunday-Thursday.

Jim comes to the Law Library in a roundabout way. He first used the library when helping his wife Skipper, a graduate of UGA School of Law in 1992, with her research during law school. Little did he know that 20 years later he would return to work here. He received his MFA from the University of Georgia in 1992 and is a practicing artist, showing his landscape paintings in the region as well as in his home state of Michigan. Jim has worked as a custodial supervisor, the Chief Preparator at the Georgia Museum of Art, as a carpenter and electrician's helper, and as an art teacher at the Lyndon House Arts Center.

So stop by the Circulation Desk in the evening to say hello to Jim!
