Space Invaders 2: It's still happening

Ana Rejoins CDU

I'm very happy to be part of the Collection Development Unit once more, leading an amazing team of talented people!

I'm re-taking over responsibility for maintaining the Collection Development Policy, coordinating the unit's training calendar, assessment and project management, overseeing the library's materials budget, and handling vendor negotiations.

I'm looking forward to working with my colleagues in the Department of Library Resources, and acting as a point person for all your collection development questions.


Liaison Program Updates

Elizabeth and I are working on some outreach ideas for liaisons from a webinar we attended.

If anyone has any previous outreach items that they sent to their departments (even old ones), we would love to see them for brainstorming ideas. Please email them to me or Elizabeth.


E-Resources News

Before the fiscal year ended we were able to pick up subscriptions to RapidILL for our Resource Sharing team and Niche Academy for our RIS Teaching and Engagement Group. Thank you to our Technical Services colleagues for working with us to make this possible!
