SUNY Delhi has a few staffing updates to share:
Katelyn Baroody has left us to move back to New Orleans, and has taken on a Head Librarian role at Nunez Community College.
We are pleased to announce that we will be welcoming Sarah Meisch-Lacombe to Delhi in October in the role of Outreach & Assessment Librarian.
Jenny Collins will be out on leave for the fall 2021 semester.

The library will be getting a new elevator (yay!), however it will necessitate the old elevator to be non-operational for about 2 months during the semester beginning Sept. 27th (boo!).

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2021 Annual conference, we hope you enjoyed your taste of Delhi, and that one day you get to visit us in person!

Respectfully,
Carrie Fishner

The SUNY Adirondack Library has had several staff changes:

Professor of Library Science Teresa Ronning and Distinguished Professor of Library Science Joyce Miller have both retired as of August 31. Terry and Joyce joined the library faculty in 1995. Joyce will continue working two days a week, assisting with research and instruction.

Emily Goodspeed continues as Library Chair and Digital Services Librarian.

Danielle Thomas has been hired as Research Services Librarian. She was a student assistant at the SUNY Adirondack Library starting in 2015, and graduated from SUNY Adirondack in 2017. She was hired as a part-time Library Specialist and also attended SUNY Plattsburgh's Branch Campus at SUNY Adirondack. She received her bachelor's degree in psychology in 2019, and became a full-time Library Services Assistant. While working full-time, she pursued a library degree. She received her Master's in Information and Library Science in August. She will be the Collection Development/Liaison Librarian for English, Social Sciences and Human Services Divisions and the Liaison Librarian for the Plattsburgh Branch Campus.
