Meet Jen Wolf Suzanne Graham
Law Library is pleased to welcome Jen Wolf to the Cataloging
Department. As a technical editor/writer with an interest in
information architecture (and an MA in Professional Writing from UMass
Dartmouth), Jen has recently crossed the bridge into library and
information science, drawn to current and emerging issues in the
organization, storage, and management of information. There is likely a
Master's in Library and Information Science (MLIS) in her future.
Still a New Englander at heart, Jen is a die-hard Red Sox fan and
prefers Dunkin Donuts (no flavuh, no shugah) to Krispy Kreme. Beyond
that, she is a confirmed information junkie.
Loves: her pets, hiking, gardening, reading.
Dislikes: rhetorical extremes and bad grammar in daily newspapers.
If you see Jen, please welcome her to the UGA Law Library. She’ll be

What does Encore search?
Encore performs a keyword search against the same bibliographic records
used by the traditional Gavel catalog search, but retrieves relevant
information in a display that fully leverages the rich data contained
