The University of Minnesota Law Library is pleased to announce that Scott Dewey has joined the Law Library faculty as our Faculty Research Librarian.

Scott comes to us from UCLA School of Law Library where he served for ten years as the Scholarly Support Analyst. In this role, Scott provided in-depth research support for a scholarly and highly productive law faculty. Scott earned his J.D. from UCLA School of Law, where he was elected to Order of the Coif. Scott also holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in History from Rice University, and a M.L.I.S. in Library and Information Science from UCLA. He earned his B.A, summa cum laude, from the University of Houston where he majored in history.

Scott also has experience as a judicial attorney for the California Court of Appeal. He is the author of several articles in the fields of history, law, and information science. His book  - "Don’t Breathe the Air": Air Pollution and U.S. Environmental Politics, 1945-1970 (Texas A&M University Press, 2000) - examines the development of air pollution control as a national and federal policy issue in the postwar United States, and was recently cited in the EPA's Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units.

Scott's primary responsibilities at the Law Library will include providing expert research support to the Law School faculty; providing instruction and consultation services for faculty members' research assistants; and designing and implementing new service initiatives for faculty. Scott also will serve as the library liaison to the Minnesota Law Review

Please join us in in welcoming Scott!
