Spotlight on an Okie Law Librarian

Spotlight on Law Librarians: Lou Lindsey

...Lou's early career was as an elementary school teacher in Colorado & Nebraska, followed by an enviable elementary school librarian position in Virginia where her library had a fireplace with her mom's braided wool rug for a cozy story time!

After 9 years of higher education leading to law librarianship (BA at Earlham; MLS at UWA; JD at UND; & SLIS at IU), she decided it was time to work. As a law librarian, she has worked in academia non-stop, beginning at University of Arkansas in Fayetteville for a dozen years, then University of Connecticut for a couple years, and back to MAALL/SWALL territory at the University of Tulsa where she has served as Associate Director for 10 years now, a mere half of the time Rick Ducey is celebrating in October as Director. Lou also directed North Dakota's Central Legal Research for a few years as a freshly admitted North Dakota/Minnesota attorney. This program, which still exists, provides research by law students for court-appointed defense counsel, judges and prosecutors from the state. She was thrilled to visit CLR when MAALL was in Grand Forks last October, and have a reunion with the same administrative assistant she had hired, and former student workers from her time there (1977-80)!...
