Campus Updates-Cobleskill

We've been doing limited 'curbside' pickups for physical items. Some of our regular users are SO glad to get hold of new reading material.

April Davies (me) is co-presenting a preconference session on Tenure and Promotion for the SUNYLA conference.

Katherine Brent continues to put in many hours of work as co-chair of the college's Middle States committee.

The library will be closed all summer which hasn't happened since we were shut down for renovation several years ago. We're all still working of course, mostly from home for now.

The HVCC campus remains closed. Faculty and staff have limited building access. The library's new reserve textbook excerpt service has been well received. Temporary OER Librarian, Sarah Romeo will be giving a lightening talk on Supporting OER Sustainability by Educating Faculty on Creative Commons Licensing at this year's SUNYLA conference.

Keith Krejci retired on April 29, 2020. Keith started his career at Stony Brook University in 1982 in the Printing Services Department as a machine operator. A few years later, he was promoted to floor supervisor where he assisted with the trials and decision-making on new printing equipment to better serve the University. Starting in 1989, he became a CSEA Union shop steward and helped bring about a much-needed ventilation system and safer working conditions in the Print Shop.

They were the primary cataloger for music scores and physical-format audio and video recordings, and contributed strongly to the department's efforts to reinstate Stony Brook Libraries' status as a contributor to the prestigious Library of Congress Program for Cooperative Cataloging. Anastasia also co-authored Developing a Residency Program: A Practical Guide for Librarians, published by Rowman & Littlefield in 2019. We extend our best wishes to Anastasia.

Resnick Library has been closed (physically) since the end of March, and will continue to be so through the summer.  We are looking at opening again in August, although no concrete plans have been set. We are still providing virtual services to students, faculty, and staff.

We have been engaging with patrons via Facebook and Twitter - using our word of the day posts that would normally be done in the building, Stress Less LibGuide to replicate our end of year programming, and a Peeps visit to the library.

Carrie Fishner (me) is co-presenting at the Tenure & Promotion Boot-camp for SUNYLA 2020 Annual Conference.
Amanda Calabrese achieved promotion to Associate Librarian, and Steve Dixon achieved promotion to Librarian.
Jennifer Collins was awarded the Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Librarianship.
Katelyn Baroody and Liz Santobuono presented "Wizards, Jedi, and Gamers, Oh My!: Library Con on a Limited Budget" at the virtual conference, Big Talk from
