K incaid C. Brown had always been interested in the law—both of his parents are attorneys—so aer earning a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Michigan in 1994, Brown pursued a JD at the school. Like many students in law school, he gained on-the-job experience handling case-related tasks at summer legal jobs. During the school year, Brown, who'd worked at his local library in Westchester County, New York, in high school, helped out with a broad array of projects at the University of Michigan Law Library. e part-time academic position was a welcome change—so much so that as graduation approached, Brown realized he enjoyed the document delivery and research work he was doing more than anything a rm might oer. Aer a lunchtime discussion with the law library's head of reference and its director, Brown concluded he wanted to seek a career in library services and planned to pursue his next University of Michigan degree, a master of science in information (MSI). "ey were supportive of it being an excel- lent opportunity for people who may not be sold on practicing law," said Brown. "When I graduated law school, I still took the bar and went straight into library school—I've been here ever since, for 18 years." Kincaid C. Brown works as the University of Michigan's law library assistant director —and with a U of M undergrad, JD, and MSI degree, he is also a three-time alumnus.
