Carleen Huxley:
Please add your campus updates to this thread.

Karen Ferington:
Niagara C.C.C.

We are busy this summer preparing to send part of our collection of books and media to the new Hospitality and Tourism Center being built in Niagara Falls, NY.  The former Rainbow Mall is being renovated to accomodate our Culinary Arts, Hospitality, and Tourism programs slated to begin operations there in September 2012. 
Also our Vice-President of Student Affairs, Bassam Deeb, has accepted a position as President of Trocaire College in Buffalo beginning this fall.

Amanda Calabrese:
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 If you're interested in withdrawn items, keep an eye on your e-mail; we'll be offering these up soon.

Genesee Community College

Reference Services Librarian Anita Whitehead retired May 18th and Cindy Hagelberger, our part-time cataloger, was hired for this position starting June 1st. Cindy came to GCC in 1996 as a part-time Reference Librarian and has had many roles in the library since then. We are happy to welcome Cindy to her new position.

SUNY Old Westbury

We are busy preparing for the library renovation. Phase one should begin shortly. We are in the process of removing old books, changing some of the reference collection to circulation, removing periodicals that are available online as well as removing old VHS videos.
Classes are not being scheduled in the library for the summer and fall.
Before the semester ended our business librarian, Curt Friehs did offer workshops for our business databases and another workshop in conjunction with career services, which were viewed as successful.

Antonia DiGregorio, Delegate
