Systems Librarian Joe Wynne retired on July 24th after 37 years of service to the University of Virginia Law Library.
Joe joined the law school in 1978 as a cataloger, worked under two library directors (Larry Wenger and Taylor Fitchett), was a reference librarian, budget and technology manager, a leading contributor in moving the library into the digital age, AND the library's softball team coach for many seasons.
For those fortunate enough to work with Joe, it's an understatement to say that his talent, fairness, easy-going nature, and wit will be missed. Not to mention his love of Pittsburgh sports teams, a cold Guinness, and anything Italian.
The Virginia Association of Law Libraries (VALL) supports and serves its members’ professional pursuits by fostering a spirit of leadership and cooperation, providing educational and leadership opportunities, and promoting and enhancing the value of law libraries.
