This is the long-overdue continuation of an “in-depth” interview series with new librarians at Georgia State University College of Law Library, See earlier installments here, here, here, here, and here.
We introduce our new librarians in the same way we introduced their colleagues at Georgia State Law Library– with a questionnaire invented by Austin Williams which is borrowed in spirit, if not in part, from Marcel Proust.
Austin (if he were still here): What is your name and what do you do?
Cassandra: Cassandra Patterson, I provide reference services, teach one class of legal research (Research Methods), and oversee the library’s outreach services.
A: How long have you been at Georgia State University College of Law Library?
C: It will be three months next Tuesday. Time flies when you’re having fun!
A: What books are currently on your nightstand (or Kindle)?
C: I am currently reading books that focus on leadership and vulnerability. (I love self-development books!) This month, I am finishing up Daring Greatly by Brené Brown.
A: What is an interesting fact about yourself that you would like to share with our readers?
C: I love college sports, especially basketball. My love for basketball started when I played basketball in my “younger” days. I also played on a team during law school (1Ls vs 2Ls)!
A: When you are not saving the world here at GSU Law Library, what do you enjoy doing outside of work?
C: I enjoy watching sports and movies. I also love to travel and visit new sites.
