photo Corey Cook, a staff member with the University Library who was known for his love of technology and his willingness to help others, passed away on July 2, 2007. Corey was a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, who moved to Atlanta in 1997 as an AmeriCorps volunteer. He spent several years working as a trainer in computer programs at John F. Kennedy Middle School and Atlanta Fulton Public Library before starting work at Georgia State University in February 2002.

Since 2005 he worked in the Liaison & Outreach Services department of the Library where he assisted librarians by updating web guides, creating spreadsheets and supporting library instruction. Corey also participated at the University level where he served on staff council, represented the Library for the 360 degrees of giving program, and regularly volunteered to help with commencement. Corey was always looking for ways to help others and to this end he volunteered with Hands On Atlanta where he used his training background to teach basic computer skills. In March 2007, he was highlighted in the Hands On Atlanta publication Citizen Magazine as volunteer of the month. His co-workers remember him as a patient man who was always willing to help and who had a great sense of humor.
