A Tribute to Nancy P. Johnson, 1949-2014

nancypjohnson1Nancy P. Johnson ended her battle with ovarian cancer on Saturday, December 13th.  For me, she was a mentor, a former boss and teacher, a generous colleague,  a role model, a lady, and a gentle soul.  I first met Nancy at Clark Atlanta University where she taught Law Librarianship.  I was then fortunate to begin my career under her at Georgia State, first as an intern and later as the Public Services Librarian.   She built a small library into an impressive research facility that students, faculty, staff, local lawyers and librarians loved to use. She trained and influenced an entire generation of law librarians and law library directors.  She will be missed by many, particularly her family, but we are all richer for having known her.  Check out Dean Steve Kaminshine’s tribute to her here.
