Leigh A. Jones, a proud native of Birmingham, has been the evening and weekend reference librarian at the Lucille Stewart Beeson Law Library since May 2017. Prior to arriving at Samford, she spent nine years at Tuskegee University, where she served in the positions of engineering librarian and government documents/reference librarian. Her professional interests include information accessibility and technical writing (specifically, aspects of content marketing and instructional design).
