May is a time of transition: graduations, promotions and relocation. This month the Darling Library will see the following staff changes:
Farewell to Sarah Kimakwa
Sarah has served as our Acquisitions Manager since 2004, has completed her MLIS degree at San Jose State University and will participate in convocation exercises there on May 16th. Then she will be off to Chicago where she will begin working as the Acquisitions Librarian at Chicago State University. We will miss her laugh, her smile, and her thoughtful questioning spirit. But before she leaves, she passes the baton.
Congratulations to Young Il Kang
Young has been our part-time Serials Assistant since he arrived on campus to study in February 2008. He graduates on May 16th with the MBA and will continue on with us as our new Acquisitions Manager.
Welcome to Samuel Adjei
Samuel is our new Serials Assistant. He has been an MBA student at Hope since the fall 2008. He comes to Hope from Ghana by way of the UK where he received a degree in Environmental Information Systems from Greenwich University in London.
Farewell to Student Library Assistants
Congratulations to Kara Harvey and Josh Hughes as they graduate from Pacific Christian College this month. They both have been model Student Library Assistants for public services. As is our custom, a book representing their major or interest is being placed in the Darling Library in their honor.
The rest our faithful Student Library Assistants , will be scattering for the summer months and return to us in the fall. (There will be a few who will be working through the summer.)
