Karen Ferington:
The H.G. Library at Niagara County Community College will have two searches in progress this summer. We are looking for a Circulation Librarian and an Emerging Technology Librarian. Hopefully both positions will be filled by September 1st.  The Circulation position is a replacement for our Library Director who was previously the Circulation Librarian. The Emerging Technology position is a new position which is very much needed to keep us up-to-date with systems and new technologies in our library. The closing date for applications for the Circulation position has passed and interviews are scheduled to be held very soon. The Emerging Technology position has not yet been posted as of 6/10/10 but will hopefully be posted very soon. We are planning ahead and looking for exciting changes in the 2010-2011 academic year at NCCC.

Binghamton University has a number of people retiring or leaving at the end of June:
Kate Bouman -- Reference Librarian
Carol Clemente -- Head of Reader Services
June O'Neil -- Clerk II, Cataloging
Antoinette Shannon -- Sr. Bibliographic Asst.
George Yarnes -- Asst. Cataloger
Unknown if any or all of them will be replaced.

Cobleskill Highlights

Construction continues. The next phase is due to begin mid-August.

Katherine Brent will be presenting a poster session on reusable book bands for ILL at the conference. Stop by and give her a hard time.

The campus is in the midst of an organizational shake-up. It's not yet clear what impact this will have on the Library but initial indications are somewhat positive.

We'll see the departure of two employees - Linda Davenport and Jennifer Taft in Public Services - shortly.

The library is bringing together the Help Center and Circulation to create the Information Resources Support Center, based in the library.  A new manager will be hired for this position, reporting to the Directors of the Library and Academic Computing.

Congratulations to Anita Kuiken, who is expecting twins!
