The CUNY Libraries Assessment Committee put together a great morning of presentations & project highlights — it was illuminating to hear what some of my fellow CUNY librarians are up to in their libraries! I’ll share some brief notes, but there’s plenty of useful information available on the CUNY Library Assessment guide.
The LACUNY Institute is an annual, one-day conference open to LIS professionals, students, and the general public. It is organized by the Library Association of the City University of New York, and we are looking for proposals related to this year’s theme: “Librarianship in Challenging Times—Advocating for Intellectual Freedom, Democracy, and Equity.” Submit until February 16! https://tinyurl.com/LACUNY-Inst-2018-CFP
Today, as Open Access Week wraps up, I trekked out to Stony Brook University to attend their third annual Open Access Symposium.
I’m happy to report that I’ve just taken a new job at York College Library! I’m very excited to be part of York College and CUNY as a whole, helping students achieve greater educational and economic opportunities! I’ll mostly be focused on providing reference and research services for students and faculty, and I hope to be involved in working with students from both Queens High School for the Sciences and York Early College Academy. At the same time, I’m very sad to leave my colleagues at Brooklyn Public Library, and I’ll also miss the community I worked with over the past few years. I hope there will be opportunities to continue to collaborate with many of the amazing librarians and library staff I met at Brooklyn Public Library as I continue to grow into the field at York!
