Kathleen Gallagher to serve on Collections Budget Group

I’m very pleased to announce that beginning July 1, Kathleen Gallagher has agreed to join the Collections Budget Group as the Fund Coordinator for the Arts & Humanities Group.

Kathleen’s experience and flexibility in helping the Library address new challenges and opportunities make her an excellent candidate for CBG.  Her work on CSC, the consortial PDA position paper, the CDC journal evaluation project, and the Library Services Model self-study team have demonstrated Kathleen’s broad and deep understanding of collection development issues and her ability to take a library-wide perspective.

Claude Potts, who has served as the A&H Fund Coordinator, will take over from Jim Spohrer, to become the Fund Coordinator for International and Area Studies.

 I welcome Kathleen to CBG and thank Claude for his willingness to take on a new Fund Coordinator role.

Best, Bernie

New ENVI exhibit on “Tools of the Trade”


A new exhibit at the Environmental Design Library features items that help a designer carry out the day-to-day tasks of becoming and then practicing as an architect, landscape architect, or planner. The exhibit, which will be on display through September 4, presents ways in which objects were used for learning and teaching design, from shade and shape to perspective and shadow. It also provides a detailed glimpse into the practice of a father-daughter architecture office of the early 20th century, in order to see the application of these tools. Visit during ENVI’s open hours.
