Library Employees Earn Degrees

Library personnel are constantly striving to serve the needs of the GSU community through personal and professional development. Today we celebrate several of our own who have pursued and attained additional degrees while also working at the downtown campus University Library. Congratulations to the following people on their graduations this spring:

Policy studies librarian La Loria Konata earned her Juris Master degree in Intellectual Property from Emory University School of Law. Her legal studies supplement her subject work with Criminal Justice, Economics, Public Management & Policy, and Social Work. Read La Loria’s “Meet a Librarian” profile here.
