Mr. John Eaton has left an extensive legacy at the University of Manitoba Libraries through his scholarship in bibliography and legal resources.

Mr. Eaton began his career at the University of Manitoba Libraries in 1991 as a reference librarian in the Faculty of Law’s E. K. Williams Library. He was instrumental in the planning stages of the law library’s information and research service, LAWDOC, a cost recovery service to meet the needs of the legal and business communities, governments and the general public in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario.

After a brief interlude at the University of Western Ontario, Mr. Eaton returned as head law librarian, a position he held until his retirement in April 2016. In addition to this role, he served as associate professor of introductory and advanced legal research.
