Jina DuVernay, Visiting Archivist for African American Collections, Rose Library

“I feel honored to be at Emory, and I am working with a great group of people.” – Jina DuVernay

Jina DuVernay is the latest visiting archivist in the Rose Library. Before coming to Emory, she spent three years as a special collections librarian at Alabama State University. She spent several years working for the Department of Labor and the Driver’s License Agency for the State of Alabama. She also worked for the City of Long Beach.

Originally from Long Beach, CA, Jina moved to Alabama when she got tired of southern California traffic. Jina earned her bachelor’s degree in English language and literature from Troy University, her master’s degree in liberal arts from Auburn University at Montgomery, and her master’s degree of library and information science from the University of Alabama.

Jina has family that lives in Atlanta, and she enjoys spending time with them. She loves movies and reading.

“Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been fascinated with African-American studies,” says Jina. “I was always curious about learning the things they didn’t teach us in school. I feel honored to be at Emory, and I am working with a great group of people.”
