Kudos to Rob Walker from Bonnie Bazley in the Provost’s Office “for lending items from your great computer collection for our Data Center Naming of the Supercomputer event. They were the hit of the party!” Great job sharing our resources and touring Bonnie and Sarah around the library!
Kudos to Sara Outhier at the Hamon Arts Library for being re-classified from a Library Specialist 5 to a Librarian 1. This re-classification and promotion comes from a growing need to work with Meadows faculty and students to incorporate digital asset management, metadata, rights management and discovery interfaces as demand for born-digital content has grown. Sarah received her MSLIS from UNT in 2012 and has been active in supporting the Meadows community with their academic needs since she arrived that year.
Kudos to Michelle Hahn in Technology Services for being promoted to Librarian 3! Michelle has been with us since 2008 as a music catalog librarian and has been actively involved in the Music Library Association, having recently served as co-editor of the Music Reference Services Quarterly. In addition to her cataloging duties she provides reference service in the Hamon Arts Library supporting Meadows students and faculty (filling in as subject liaison before the arrival of Pam Pagels), and has been very involved in numerous CUL committees. Congrats, Michelle!

Great photo of a student and the therapy dogs in the Dallas Morning News Metro Section today. Great idea, Hollie – and thanks to all staff who participated in organizing and staffing the event. I know that our students were just delighted with this addition to our support services.
Kudos to Hollie Gardner for inviting the team from Paws Across Texas to our library. This was a huge sucess and the students thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m sure they will want the dogs back for Spring finals.
Great job, Hollie!

Thanks to the heroic efforts of several staff and students, we were able to keep the library open every day during the ice storm. Special kudos go to Jane Wong, Julia Stewart, Samantha Cavanaugh and various student workers. I know that our student studiers were very grateful for you being there for them – there was not an empty seat on my floor yesterday afternoon.
Kudos to Michelle Johnson and John Milazzo for their quick and professional actions and reactions in response to the notice of the University lockdown.
Kudos to Evelyn Day and Porcia Vaughn along with their partners in Student Affairs and the Women’s Center for making the inaugural Living Library event an overwhelming success! Dr. Lori White, Vice President for Student Affairs, said, “I enjoyed being a living book and having people ‘check me out.’ What a wonderful collaborative effort and I hope this will become an annual program.”
Kudos to Porcia Vaughn and Evelyn Day from Mary Hollerich for authoring a great supplement to this year’s CUL Cookout! Their Living Library was a huge success, so much so that some of the “books” are already asking to participate again next year, and new acquisitions are waiting to be added to the collection. I thoroughly enjoyed my book, “Not My Miracle”. Great job, ladies!
The winter 2012 CUL newsletter was awesome. Great job on the relaunch!
