This summer, Reed Library is undergoing several building maintenance and renovation projects.  In addition to these projects, the Reed Library faculty and staff are beginning the initial discussions for space planning for the new academic commons, which should be underway by the beginning of the next academic year and should be complete within five years.

SUNY ESF Campus Update
« Reply #16 on: June 05, 2012, 10:37:18 AM »
This summer has started out as a busy one here at Moon Library - SUNY ESF.


Moon Library just purchased a license to LibGuides – Here is our new LibGuides site http://libguides.esf.edu


We also just purchased a license to LibAnswers  http://libanswers.esf.edu and plan to spend this summer populating the software with frequently asked Questions and Answers to prepare us for the upcoming fall semester.


The reference librarians at Moon Library now have two iPads to use to assist with reference. Plans are underway to make the most of these when the fall semester starts.


Jessica Clemons, Assistant Librarian at Moon Library was a presenter at the 2012 LOEX conference in May 2012. Title of presentation: Reaching Modern Students Through Amazing Screencasts


Steve Weiter, Director of Libraries at SUNY was the moderator and Jane Verostek, Associate Librarian at Moon Library was a presenter at the 2012 ALLUNY Association of Law Libraries of Central New York Spring Institute at the Syracuse University College of Law in May 2012.
Title of presentation: QR Codes: Linking Your Library Users to Information.

Dear Colleagues,

As mentioned before, I will be retiring at the end of July.  When a replacement is announced, you all will be notified.  If the person were to come from outside SUNY, I will make sure that she/he is introduced to SUNYLA.  This organization is like a big family, individually and collectively always ready to help. 

Although this year's conference is in my backyard, I'm not able to attend.  I wish you all a successful and, above all, fun meeting!

Best wishes,
Kadri

Late in submitting this, but I was really hoping for some good news to report.  We've been notified that a candidate for library director has accepted the Director position, unofficially, that has been vacant since December of 2010 - keep your fingers crossed for us!  

Nancy Cannon is starting a 6-month sabbatical this summer to work on a history research project. We are about to start our third attempt to hire a new reference librarian, permission to conduct another search was given recently.  

Anne McFarland has worked with an intern and Alvin Dantes to create a digitized collection of WWII letters found in our special collections that were written by previous students in the war to faculty members here on campus at that time.

Lots of renovation on campus.  The library has seen an influx of 9 offices, most of which are to be only 2-year residences.  That's about it from Oneonta.  Sorry I will not be there in person, but I will attend the Council meeting via Eluminate.
