If you’re a returning student, you may notice some new faces in the library this fall.
Stacy Taylor filled the position of Emerging Technologies Librarian in late April. She’ll be maintaining the Nielsen Library’s website and managing the library’s social media presence. Stacy relocated from the Chicago area.
Jordan Gortmaker joined our team in mid-July as our Circulation Supervisor. He will be overseeing the work-study students at the circulation desk. Jordan recently got his Masters Degree from the University of Colorado Denver and moved here from the Denver area.
Carol Smith will be taking over as our library director in September. She will be joining us from the University of Central Missouri, Warrensburg, where she has been working as a Technology Initiatives Librarian.
We’ve also had three staff members retire recently. Glenda Geu, Technology and Acquisitions Librarian, retired last July. Murleen Goodrich, a library technician in the periodicals department, retired in late April. Our director, David Goetzman, officially retired at the end of June, but is helping out part-time until Carol Smith takes over.
We’ll miss our retirees, but we’re excited about our new hires and the fresh ideas they’ll bring with them.
