Remembering Nancy Johnson

Law Groundbreaking Lunch 14-0090

The College of Law and the profession of law librarianship was hit by a tremendous loss this week. Nancy Johnson, who retired as Associate Dean for Library and Information Services and Professor of Law in 2012, passed away on December 13, 2014. She began working at the GSU Law Library in 1982 and was an integral part of the development of the College and Law Library. Her impact began with some of the first students in the College of Law and continues in the future with the design of the new building.

While her importance is well-known to the College of Law community, she also had a profound influence on the profession of law librarianship. Throughout her career, Nancy inspired and nurtured entire generations of law librarians. She mentored law librarians on research, teaching, scholarship, management, and often personal life issues.

For more information about Nancy and a Celebration of Life on December 21, 2014, please see the College of Law announcement.

We would like to create a space where people can leave memories of Nancy and how she touched their lives and careers. Please contribute your thoughts in the comments field.
