Laura has spent forty plus years working in libraries to help people get the information they need. In 1997, she took a position in charge of the Heritage Room at the Athens-Clarke County Library in Athens, GA and began attending IGHR as the best and most efficient way of helping her library s genealogy patrons. She also realized she needed to learn how to deal with archival collections so went back to school and got a Specialist in Library and Information Science (SLIS) degree focused on Archives and Manuscripts. In 2012, she was elected a Fellow of the Society of Georgia Archivists due to her advocacy for genealogical and historical collections and her time spent teaching other professionals how to work with genealogists and family historians. Laura loves to learn new things and to teach others new things, so found working in libraries the best job in the world. Now retired from the library, she enjoys sharing her knowledge of resources and how to use them with anyone who will listen.
