Emily Crews, Circulation Assistant 
Meet Emily Crews

Join 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. Who.

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.
