I am pleased to announce the names of two new staff members at SUNY Delhi! Our new Acquisitions Manager is Brad Post, and our new Reference & Instruction Librarian is Megan Welsh, who is finishing up her MLIS at University of Denver. We are very excited to have them on board.

Due to the renovation of another building on campus, an additional computer classroom was built in the library during the mid-semester break. Now that summer is here, we have been busy moving things out of the new classroom space and trying to rearrange furniture to compensate for the loss of quiet study space. We have created a new, more inviting area for our leisure reading materials, and we are doing some heavy weeding of VHS tapes and older reference books. If you're interested in withdrawn items, keep an eye on your e-mail; we'll be offering these up soon.

Here at Resnick Library, we are currently in the process of hiring a new Reference & Instruction Librarian, and another search will begin soon for a new Acquisitions Manager. We are eager to fill these spots and bring some new people on board-- having two vacancies in an already small staff can be a bit challenging.

At the beginning of the spring semester, we purchased two human skeleton models for our nursing students to use in studying skeletal anatomy. One skeleton is fully articulated on a wheeled stand, and the other is disarticulated (basically a wooden case full of separate bones). Both skeletons will circulate as reserve items. We ran a little contest to gather suggestions for names for both skeletons, and received 59 entries! The library staff voted and the winners were Vincent (after Vincent Price, and Alice Cooper's real name) and Indiana Bones.
