This marks the first of a series of in-depth, exclusive interviews I am doing with the librarians and staff here at Georgia State University College of Law Library. I hope you enjoy!
Austin: What is your name and what do you do?
Terrance: Terrance Manion, Director of Information Technology and Librarian
A: How long have you been at Georgia State University College of Law Library?
T: 12 years, but a third of that time I was in our evening part-time law program and do not really remember many details of that time.
A: What books are currently on your night stand?
T: I am currently reading the The Phantom Tollbooth to the brothers Manion and A Year in Provence when I actually get a moment to myself.
A: What is an interesting fact about yourself that you would like to share with our readers?
T: In a previous life I was a stagehand (IATSE local #3) and before that a bassist in a regionally-successful college-rock band (Pretty Mighty Mighty-with whom you can still seed Pandora)
A: When you are not saving the world here at GSU Law Library, what do you enjoy doing outside of work?
T: I coach soccer and pretend to know more about bourbon than I actually do (but I am still doing research).
A: Lastly, what is your favorite vacation spot? The place you go to leave it all behind for a few days.
T: Bradenton, Florida- the spring training home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
There you have it folks. The complete, unedited, behind the scenes interview with Terrance Manion.
