Bernadette Johnson, Reference Librarian and Government Information Coordinator at Francis Marion University’s James A. Rogers Library, highlights their library’s African American Collection in a new video available on the Library’s website and Facebook page.

Johnson has been with the Rogers Library for 14 years. Before that she worked for the Florence County Library System as a Library Associate and Librarian. She enjoys working in the library world. Johnson already decided in high school that the career for her was in the library profession, and she states that “it has been a pleasurable and fulfilling journey.”

In the video, she gives an overview of the African American Collection, including how it started, important figures who helped shape the collection, and examples of items in the collection. Johnson shares information about the non-circulating collection as well as how one can go about borrowing materials from the library, and the Covid-19 restrictions in place currently, as of the making of this video.
