Professor Catherine M. Dunn oversees the operations of the Temple Law Library and teaches Advanced Legal Research. Her scholarly interests include legal information policy, library management, legal research pedagogy, and alternative dispute resolution.
Professor Dunn joined the faculty in 2015 after serving as Head of Reference Services at the University of Connecticut School of Law Library and a Reference Librarian at the Georgetown University Law Library. She taught a variety of upper-level research courses as a member of the adjunct faculty at both of her prior institutions, as well as a mandatory, graded introductory research course for first-year students at the University of Maryland School of Law.
