Instructional Design Librarian Don LaPlant had a chapter selected for inclusion in the forthcoming book Hidden Architectures of Information Literacy Programs to be published in mid-2019 by ACRL.

The library's mac-n-cheese cookoff (Mac-n-Cheese Is Love) is scheduled for Valentine's Day. Stop by and be one our tasters if you happen to find yourself in the neighborhood. 

We've added an award for excellent writing as part of our annual Student Research Showcase. We hope to expand this awards program in subsequent years, but in our inaugural year, eligibility will be limited to essays submitted as research papers in sections of ENGL101. The showcase will take place April 24th here at the library.

Our annual Chili Cook-Off is happening Oct. 3 here at the Library. Stop by and be a taster if you're in the neighborhood. Our big book sale will be going on at the same time so you can do some shopping too!

Serials & Systems Librarian Peter Barvoets was recently promoted to the rank of Associate Librarian.

April Davies, Head of Technical & Public Services, will be doing a poster session on adapting a weighted allocation formula to work for smaller libraries at the upcoming Charleston Conference.

We are in the process of hiring a new Tech. Services clerk and are hoping for an Oct. 1 start date.

Wrong agenda I think. The file name is right but the content is for the June meeting at FLCC.

Publications Committee Report
June 12, 2018


Activities:
•   The May newsletter went out in the nick of time.
•   The committee got 2 new members! Justin Cronise from Erie and Aleshia Huber from Binghamton.

Upcoming:
•   We’ll put out a special post-conference issue if we have enough content.
•   The next regular issue is October. Call for submissions will go out in September.
•   I’m thinking about starting special issues of the newsletter devoted to single topics (OER, privacy, etc.), probably only once or twice a year. The idea still needs work so feel free to send me any ideas you may have.

We are excited to report that Mandy Babirad will be joining us as our new Outreach & Public Services Librarian this summer! We stole her from Morrisville.

Meanwhile, Circulation Manager Brendan Aucoin was stolen away by Oneonta.

Don LaPlant and Brendan are presenting a poster session at the SUNYLA conference on the impact of 1:1 research consultations. Katherine Brent will also be doing a poster session on assessment of library displays. April Davies will do a Tech Services lightning round presentation on a weighted allocation formula for acquisitions.

Cathy Wise and Dawn Foland were in Corning last week for the NYSLAA conference. Based on the pictures they sent, it was a good time as well as educational.

« on: November 02, 2017, 09:03:28 PM »
Library Dean Beth Orgeron is currently in Philadelphia for the Educause conference.

April Davies (me) leaves for the Charleston Conference this weekend. April is part of the Acquisitions working group for the Alma migration and is representing SUNYLA on the search committee for the SLC (SCLD) executive director.

The Library's annual chili cook-off was a hit once again. Librarian Peter Barvoets took the prize for Most Unique and one of the student assistants in the Circ department (Katie, culinary major) won Best Tasting. Voting was by the tasters, we had nothing to do with them winning.  :)

Our annual book sale continues until Thanksgiving break. Come visit and do some shopping. I'll even give you a SUNYLA discount.
