Jackie Johnston

Acquisitions Supervisor

  • Staff


Jackie J. Johnston is the head of acquisitions/periodicals and book binding in the Zimmerman Law Library.

She joined the University of Dayton Law Library in 1978. And after a couple years in the Law Library, she accepted a position at Roesch Library, the undergraduate library, where she worked for 25 years. She then returned home to the Zimmerman Law Library in 2005. “I have been so fortunate to work for the libraries and with all the fine faculty, staff and students who have crossed my path,” she says.

“It is hard to believe that I have been working at the University of Dayton for more than three decades,” she says. “I know that when retirement comes for me I can look back and be very proud of the University and its Marianist heritage, and feel very confident that the students who leave here do so with pride. I am also a graduate of the University of Dayton and am so honored.”

In her free time, Ms. Johnston works for the Shephard's Hands food and clothing bank in Brookville.
