Inspiration For Becoming A Law Librarian
Librarianship in general has been a passion all my life. I was especially influenced by my high school librarian, Mrs. Smith and was involved in Library Service Club in high school. Law librarianship was accidental. After seeing an ad for a position as Technical Services Librarian in the Dallas newspaper, I applied and the rest is history! Earl Borgeson was my first professional boss and I learned a lot about librarianship and law librarianship in particular from him.
