Women of Library History

Author: Susan Good

Congratulations to Susan Hamilton, Special Projects Assistant in the Kresge Law Library who was recently republished in “A Women’s History Month” project of the Feminist Task Force of the American Library Association.

In 2011, Hamilton wrote about the first three female directors at the University of Notre Dame’s Kresge Law Library. Her colleague, Beth Given (Data Management Technician at the Kresge Library and editor of the newsletter at that time) shared those articles with the Feminist Task Force with permission. Excerpts from Hamilton’s original articles are here: “Women of Library History.”

Hamilton’s complete article about Lora Lashbrook and Marie Lawrence originally appears in the January/February 2011 issue of the Kresge Law Library Newsletter (pdf, page 9), and her article about Kathleen Farmann in the March/April 2011 issue (pdf, page 10).
