|Meet Emily Crews
the Law Library in welcoming our new Circulation Assistant, Emily
Crews. Emily comes to us from deepest South Georgia. She’s from
Hortense, which you might find on the map in the center of the triangle
formed by Brunswick, Waycross and Jesup. Emily has both a bachelors’ and
a masters’ degree in History from Valdosta State; she’s now working
towards a second masters’ in Library Science.
Please share your knowledge of Athens with Emily. When she traveled here
to interview for our position, she saw the city for the first time. Now
that she has moved up to the hilly part of the state, though, she plans
to learn kayaking. When she is not exploring her new surroundings,
Emily indulges a love of crocheting and an unhealthy obsession with Dr.
Please come to Circulation to say hi, and enjoy Emily’s robust sense of humor and infectious enthusiasm.

|Leadership Library for Job Searching
In the September issue we highlighted ALM Legal Intelligence as a useful resource for your job search. This month we’re highlighting The Leadership Library.
The Leadership Library began as print directories called the Yellow
Books; they had a Yellow Pages type function by providing contact and
some background information about individuals in many different sectors.
They also had bright yellow covers. The online product has expanded the
biographical and background information.
Users can search within government agencies, law firms, courts,
non-profits, and the news media. The unique Leadership Networks function
allows you to view a featured individual's network of affiliations,
from colleges to boards to previous employment. For instance, if you
search for the hiring partner you’ve been communicating with, you may
discover he went to law school with your favorite professor or used to
work with your uncle. The My Toolbox feature allows you to create a
personal account and save your searches and the results. Use your MyID
for off campus access to The Leadership Library.
Find more job search and career development information in our guide to Career Resources from the Library.
