I am thrilled to invite you all to an Open House at the Business Library on Thursday, October 6 from 3:30-5pm.
The University Library and the Haas School of Business have collaborated on major improvements to the Thomas J. Long Business Library that we'd love for you to see this fall. Building on recommendations from the faculty and students, our Library colleagues in the Social Sciences Division and Library Design Office have done a tremendous job transforming the two floors into various types of spaces for various types of work. There are several additions -- including a unified service desk on the upper floor, a new library instruction room, and the Library's first "fit desks" which I hear are very popular.
Please join us in the Business Library open house to see -- and celebrate -- these changes. Refreshments will be served! Just follow the map.
Please join me in welcoming Albert Chung to the C.V. Starr East Asian Library. He began working as the Evening/Weekend Work Leader on Monday, September 12.
Albert is currently transitioning into the library workforce from a graduate program in the Art & Religion area at the Graduate Theological Union. Though he comes from a different area of study, he is interested in pursuing a career at libraries and learning new things, based on his previous experience spanning circulation, acquisitions and interlibrary loan work during his graduate school education.
In his new assignment, Albert will be responsible for evening/weekend public services and circulation supervision, coordinating SLE projects, and assisting in completing special projects in conjunction with pubic services and stack maintenance. Albert's desk will be in EAL 310B/160, and you may reach him by telephone at 510-642-2557/510-642-2990, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Charles Faulhaber, professor emeritus of Spanish and former chair of UC Berkeley's Department of Spanish and Portuguese, has been elected to join 100 scholars and researchers as a foreign corresponding member of the Royal Spanish Academy, or Real Academia Espaņola.
Faulhaber, former director of UC Berkeley's Bancroft Library, was named to the academy for his work on medieval Spanish literature and its manuscript sources, particularly the PhiloBiblon project. PhiloBiblon is a catalog of primary sources in manuscript and printed form for the study of medieval Iberian culture.
The Royal Spanish Academy's purpose is to guard the purity of the Spanish language. It publishes an official dictionary in collaboration with sister academies from Spanish-speaking countries around the world. It also publishes an official grammar of Spanish and maintains two databases containing hundreds of millions of words for research use.
