Cayan Library has a new director, Shannon Pritting!!  Shannon started in Utica in mid-January and we are thrilled to have him join us.  He was previously at Syracuse University.  Many of you may remember him from his days at SUNY Oswego and his presentation(s) at SUNYLA conferences as well as his involvement with the IDS Project.

 Oswego has had some recent personnel announcements.

We welcomed Elizabeth Siegel as our new half-time Reference Librarian. We said goodbye to Emily Thompson, our Learning Technologies Librarian and SUNYLA Secretary.

We currently have two openings for Emily's position and a temporary Reference Librarian. Please see the full job ads here : http://www.oswego.edu/administration/human_resources/vacancy.html.

To a successful semester!
Michelle

Hi from Albany!

You may have heard that our Dean and Director, Mary Casserly, will be retiring this summer.  The Library Dean and Director search is now getting underway.  The search committee has been appointed, and two forums for faculty, staff, and students were held with the executive search firm to discuss the position.

We installed two new water fountains in the University Library with a bottle refill spout with support from The Office of Environmental Sustainability and the Facilities Energy Office.  They allow library users to easily refill their water bottles with filtered water, in an effort to reduce waste from purchasing bottled water.  Dewey Library had one installed last year, and the Science Library will be getting one next.

We are very pleased to have just launched our new and improved Information Literacy Department website.  It highlights our new metaliteracy badging system, iLearn Workshops, and resources for faculty and students.  If you’re interested, you can check it out at : http://library.albany.edu/infolit/?source=front
