Changes at the Library and Archives
January has been a month of great change and forward movement here at the library and archives. We've been furthering our progress on our proposed improvements that were published on the wiki last semester. Li Chen, Systems Librarian, has overseen the redesign and expansion of our reference area computer workstations. The library as a whole submitted a long-range plan for improvements to our building, including fixing the library dome pictured above. Here in the archives, we collected proposals from exhibit designers regarding the remounting of the Sellars Tool Collection.
The library also welcomed Brenton Stewart, our new cataloger, onto the staff. Brenton will not only be cataloging our general library collection, but he'll also be working with the archives and special collections. Already he's helped us identify our main LC subject headings, and been part of the CS project team that's organizing our web portal that will open in the fall. Project organization and co-ordination occupied most of this month; starting next week, more pictures of the collection will be offered as before.
