Rosalyn, a former ILS student employee, joined PUBL as a temporary, part-time staff member on June 17, 2013, and worked in our Document Delivery Unit, which provides services to our state contract clientele. Roz was a wonderful addition to our staff -- keeping our document delivery work flowing, updating our manual, filling in at the circ desk, and taking on projects as time permitted. During her time with us, she also started working for the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park. And happily for her, she will begin working fulltime for them in 2015, after taking some time off.
Her last day at PUBL was Friday November 17.

Analyzing Online News Article Comments about Libraries, addresses how people view libraries -- what they desire, value, and don't value about libraries based on a content analysis of 693 comments to 54 newspaper articles about libraries in the past year. Please stop by if you are attending the conference!
