New staff in LAP

We want to announce two new staff members in Library Applications & Publishing (LAP):

Daniel Schmidt started this week as our Service Architect. Dan will be working closely with the developers to streamline deployment of code and documentation. He comes to us from and has survived PCI compliance testing (those dealing with IT security know what a big deal that is). We are thrilled to have Dan in LAP.

Yuchai Zhou joins us on June 1st as our GIS developer. Her main goal will be to move our GIS services to new architecture. She comes to us from and is very excited to work on open source projects. We look forward to her joining us at LAP.

Both Dan and Yuchai will be sitting in 289 Doe Annex.

Please join us in welcoming them both to the Library.

Farewell to Angela Gorden

Angela Gorden, who managed the library news slideshow and blog, accepted a User Experience position with Evernote. Her last day was Friday, 4/22. Although Angela was only at the library since January 2015, we have benefited from her time with us. We are still working to implement various changes that she uncovered from usability testing, and the unified news blog. We wish Angela all the best and will miss her insight.

Student Appreciation Party out of this world!

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Student Appreciation Party yesterday happen. It was quite a hit and in no small part due to the LCIS guys. They did the music, lights and movie.

Special shout outs to:

  • David Wong (the movie was a stroke of genius!)
  • JJ Mansalay (awesome job getting the crowd going and introducing our Masters of Ceremonies!)
  • Dave Duer and Sheehan Grant (you were the dynamic duo who kept the prizes moving and the crowd laughing!)
  • Jitka Horavova and Desi Gallardo (your hours of help and support kept me going!)
  • The entire LHRD, LBS and LCIS crews (you all helped me in so many ways!)

We will have pictures posted outside 110 Doe in the near future. Come see if you want to experience our version of Star Wars.

Administrative and Student Employment Coordinator
