Dr. Ching-Yu Wong joins us from Shawnee, Kansas where she worked as a Senior Information Scientist for Quintiles IMS Pharmaceutical Company. Prior to this, Dr. Ching-Yu Wong served as an academic librarian at several institutions including community and technical colleges, and as a library director for Brown Mackie College at Kansas City, KS. Dr. Ching-Yu Wong received her Ph.D. in Professional Studies in Information Management from Syracuse University.

November 4, 2022 Council Meeting @ VIRTUAL / Update from SUNY Broome

Over the summer we completed a massive evaluation and weeding of the physical collection.  We also integrated the reference collection into the general/circulating collection, and removed the reference shelving from the first floor altogether.  This has created new work spaces that students seem really pleased with!  Our circulating collection occupies a smaller footprint upstairs as well, and we found some tables elsewhere on campus that we could re-purpose for student use there.

A major repair of our roof was recently completed.  Now we are looking forward to a much-needed HVAC system repair/update -- no word yet on exactly when/how this project will proceed, though.

Good morning everyone! 

Not a whole lot to report from Purchase.  We still don't have a director, but our interim directors, Darcy Gervasio and Kim Detterbeck, along with our building manager/director admin assistant, Eileen DeGuiseppe, are doing a fantastic job.

We are also anticipating the arrival of two new librarians, provided the paperwork all gets sorted out soon, one in November and one in January.  Meanwhile we are preparing for their arrival.

The E. H. Butler Library has been working on logistics for possibly hosting SUNYLA 2024.

Our archive has recently hosted a local history group to view items from our Franczak Room (Polish history collection).

Librarian Julie Setele will be having four of the authors of "Choice Words" speak (virtually) to their Social Justice Book Club, as well as the campus community at large.

We are excited to welcome Seyvion Scott as our new First Year Experience Librarian and look forward to the connections she will be making with our students.

Recently the libraries have been experiencing a surge of students meeting in-person with librarians for research help.

Our award winning Information Literacy badging program, developed by Instructional Technologies Librarian Dax Parasnin-Samar and Associate Library Director Alice Wilson is now integrated as a course into Brightspace for any MCC faculty to use and/or assign to their students.
