Good-Bye and Good Luck to James Donovan Carol Watson,
Director of the Law Library
may be missing the familiar face of Faculty and Access Services
Librarian James Donovan at the Reference and Circulation Desks.
Unfortunately, James (a.k.a. Jim, Jimmy or Jimmy D) has left the UGA
Law Library. However, the exciting news is that on December 1, he will
become the Director of the Law Library and Associate Professor of Law
at the University of Kentucky School of Law.
James joined the UGA Law Library faculty in July 2003. During his time
at the UGA Law Library, James has had a very active professional
career. A few of his accomplishments include: he was instrumental in
the implementation of Digital Commons (http://digitalcommons.law.uga.edu),
the law school's institutional repository; he authored the textbook Legal Anthropology: An Introduction
and was the chief editor of Sexual
Orientation and the Law: A Research Bibliography;
his work has appeared in numerous law reviews and peer-reviewed
journals; and he recently won the Spectrum Article of the Year award
from the American Association of Law Libraries.
Throughout the years, we have relied upon James for Dr. Who updates,
kitty care advice, and his vast knowledge of comic book culture as well
all things science fiction-related. He has been a major asset for our
institution and we wish him the best in this next phase of his
