There have been a few changes in the Dick Smith Library staff since the last school year. Karen deFranchi and Marie Neumann retired during the summer, and Scott Pope accepted a position as an acquisitions librarian at Texas State University in San Marcos in May.
The duties and responsibilities of Karen’s position as Division Head of Technical Services have been split between Glenda Stone and Janie Jones.
Glenda has been promoted to Assistant Director for Monographs and Technical Services, which includes collection development, acquisitions, cataloging, processing, material repairs, and the Cross Timbers Digital Images Project.
Janie has been promoted to Assistant Director for Serials and Electronic Resources, which includes periodicals, microforms, bindery, mail, electronic collections, and digital special projects (such as the digitization of old J-TACs).
These promotions are effective October 1. Other promotions effective that date:
Trudy Carlson: Associate Director for User Services
Jennifer Barrera: Head of Access Services
Tracy Holtman: Head of Library Systems
Cathy Wilterding was promoted to Coordinator for Instruction/Outreach Services effective September 1. Also on that date, Rashelle Hansen moved into a new position, Electronic Resources Specialist, assisting Janie Jones. The position of Circulation Manager Kim Resendez was upgraded to a higher level effective April 4.
Finally, with Scott Pope’s departure, Jodee Tennyson is now the Acquisitions Librarian, effective June 1.
Congratulations to all!
