The current issue of Public: A Journal of Imagining America includes an article by Patricia Steenland, a lecturer in the College Writing Project, that acknowledges Theresa Salazar from Bancroft and Corliss Lee from the Instruction Services Division. While developing a new College Writing course called "Researching Water in the West," Steenland worked closely with Salazar and Lee to incorporate examples of primary sources and instruction on primary source research into the course design, which used the Owens Valley as a focal point for studying water issues.

Tamara Takeshita left the library earlier this month for a new position. As our Collections Projects Assistant, Tamara had been working halftime on collections projects at the Earth Sciences and Map Library, and halftime on the Google Books Project. We're very grateful for the progress we made on these projects as a result of her exceptional work on them. While sad news for us., it is exciting news for Tamara who has taken a new job as Business Administration Assistant for a company in Santa Clara. She'll be assisting with Japanese communications and program management, putting her Japanese major to good use.
Best wishes to Tamara on her new adventures!
