After 29 years working in the UC Berkeley Library (17 in the Art History/Classics Library) John Ceballos is retiring on Thursday, June 18, 2015. I know we will all miss John's vast expertise, including searching the online catalogs, finding out-of-print material, and overseeing selection for Classics.
Please join me in congratulating John on his long career at The Library and wishing him a wonderful retirement!
