Assistant Professor Emerita of Legal Research


Joanne Cognac Vogel earned her Bachelor’s Degree in History from Saint Louis University, and a Master of Arts Degree in Library Science from the University of Missouri – Columbia.

Practice Areas

Joanne started at Saint Louis University Law Library in 1975 and is formerly the Head of Access Services, which includes Circulation, Stack Maintenance, Interlibrary Loan / Document Delivery, Print / Electronic Reserves, Archives and Special Collections.

Research Interests
