Binghamton Libraries are interviewing for 3 new Professional positions: Science Information Services Coordinator (SL-3), Technical Services Asst.

Our 4 new Librarians, Ben Andrus, Anne Larrivee, Rachel Jaffe, and Molly O'Brien, will all be giving presentations at the Conference. If you get the chance, please take the opportunity to say "hi" to them.

Binghamton University was ranked 9th in return-on-investment (education costs versus net pay 30 years after graduation) by Investor's Business Daily.

Binghamton University

We have 4 new faculty members: Rachel Jafee, Metadata Librarian; Molly O'Brien, Metadata Librarian; Ben Andrus, Reference/Subject Librarian; Anne Larrivee, Reference/Subject Librarian. All of them are new SUNYLA members. Binghamton can't take credit for Ben's membership since he joined when he worked for Broome.

Binghamton is hosting a symposium entitled, Publishing, Promoting and Preserving Scholarship @ SUNY, on April 7th. Learn more about the symposium at:

Nancy Zimpher is not going to recommend to the SUNY Board of Trustees either of the 2 Presidential candidates recommended by the Binghamton University Council so Binghamton will have to start another search for a new President.

Moving forward with interviews for Metadata/Catalog Librarian position at the beginning of Dec. Even though the deadline for applications was Oct. 1st, it took a while to whittle down potential candidates from 70 or so down to 5. No interviews scheduled yet for Social Sciences Librarian, but then the application deadline for that position was Oct. 18th and I understand there was just as many applicants for that position as well. Lost a couple of clerical staff at the end of Sept. due to the State retirement incentive. Only have heard of one Library Faculty member leaving at the end of December. Supposedly we have been authorized to fill 3 more positions (budget willing). That should make a dent in the 40 positions that have gone vacant in the last few years. There was a water main break the weekend of Nov. 13th that resulted in power and water outages in 3 of the Science buildings including the one that houses the Science Library. The Science Library building is now open, but classes have been reassigned for the other 2 buildings until further notice.
