Camille Broussard, The Mendik Library at New York Law School
Broussard joined the New York Law School Library staff as head of reference services in 1991 and has been the director of the Library since 2008. Before coming to NYLS, she was the collection services and reference librarian at New York University Law Library, and attorney services librarian at the Boley Law Library at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. She teaches an Advanced Legal Research seminar, research workshops, and database searching classes.
