Laura W. Carter MEd, MLIS, SLIS 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. Laura presents to local societies and teaches classes on genealogy and library resources in OLLI at UGA (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Georgia). She 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, Laura enjoys sharing her knowledge of resources and how to use them with anyone who will listen. She is a member of multiple historical, genealogical, and historic preservation organizations.
