Carolyn Love Robison, Professor Emeritus at Georgia State University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in library automation and resources work.

Dr. Robison was an English major in college due to her love of literature.  She loved working with young people and realized after a few years of teaching that it wasn’t quite was she needed in her life.  After learning about the library science program at Emory University, Dr. Robison applied and pursued a degree there as it allowed her to remain in an academic setting with the ability to teach young adults.  After she received her degree, she started working at Georgia Tech and then joined the faculty at Georgia University.  In 1998, she became a professor emeritus at the institution after teaching there for more than three decades. Upon reflecting on her career, Dr. Robison feels it was incredibly rewarding. In 1989, she was recognized for her work with the Woman of Achievement Award from the YWCA.

Dr. Robison first earned a Bachelor of Arts at Denison University in 1962 and continued her academic pursuits at Emory University, receiving a MLS in 1965. In 1982, she attained a PhD at Georgia State University. In her career, she maintained professional affiliation with a variety of organizations, including the American Library Association, the Georgia Library Association, Delta Kappa Gamma, Phi Kappa Phi and Kappa Delta Pi. From 1981 to 1998, she was active with the Friends of Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library. She considers earning a doctorate as her greatest personal achievement as she had never anticipated she would set out to earn one.
