John B. Nann is the Senior Librarian for Research, Instruction, and Collection Development, and Lecturer in Legal Research at Yale Law School. He has served as a librarian at several law schools in the northeast since 1988. John has taught advanced and introductory courses in legal research since the early 1990s and was among the earliest computer services librarians and educational technologists in American academic law libraries. John has co-taught or taught the Research Methods in American Law course for over a decade. A book based on the course, the Yale Guide to Research in American Legal History is forthcoming from Yale University Press in 2018. Although he is skilled in research methods and issues in a wide range of topics and jurisdictions, John’s primary focus is on American and European legal history and the law of the European Union, Great Britain, and the Commonwealth.
