SUNY New Paltz – Morgan Gwenwald (Delegate)

Kristy Lee has been hired as the Head of Information Systems at the Senior Assistant Librarian rank, effective August 23, 2010 at the Sojourner Truth Library. Kristy has served as School Library System Librarian for Orange-Ulster BOCES and Sullivan County BOCES.  She has planned and implemented digital multimedia services and supported the Horizon online union catalog there.  Her other experience includes serving as Associate Editor for H.W. Wilson, where she maintained and revised database subject index using AACR2 cataloging rules. 

Two of our reference librarians will be out on maternity leave in the Fall semester.  Colleen Lougen gave birth to Rachel Louise on August 16, 2010.   Heather Whalen Smith is due the week of September 7th.  Stay tuned. 

In the meantime we are happy that Matthew Laudicina has joined us as the Temporary Reference and Instruction Librarian.  Matt will work 30 hours per week for a duration of 13 weeks.  He received his MS in Information Studies from SUNY Albany last May and prior to that served as a student assistant at STL, actively participating in reference services.


Planning for the library renovation continues with the project’s architect, Ayers Saint Gross. 

A well attended Student Research Symposium was held in the library at the end of Spring semester.  Over 55 student poster sessions were presented by students and faculty mentors.
This was the second year this event was held in the library as part of a growing celebration of student achievements.

Search for Head of Information Systems is underway.
