Below are some changes taking place in IADS (Information Access & Delivery Services - the division of the Libraries we all work for). This is from a message by Sue Hallgren, IADS Director.
I have created a position which combines the management of the circulation units with the Wilson stacks and periodical reserve units with the possibility of including Wilson borrowing privileges and fines in the future. This combination brings all of the IADS circulation, stacks and reserve units together in a way that they have not been before.
Jerrie Bayer has agreed to step into this position. Jerrie is uniquely qualified to take on a position such as this and her skill set fits this position very well. Jerrie has taken on these responsibilities beginning March 1. As we move forward with this new structure we will be looking at how best to organize the units within this broad area of responsibility. You will be hearing more in the future regarding that.
This change was precipitated by vacancies/changes in management positions in Circulation, Wilson Stacks and Borrowing Privileges & Fines. Joan Mouchet will be retiring from the U Libraries on April 30, 2007. At the same time IADS has a vacancy in the stacks coordinator/Wilson stack manager position as well as a shift in the position of borrowing privileges and fines (BPF) coordinator/Wilson BPF manager with Matt Bowers move to being the Libraries security coordinator 50% time. These changes gave us a unique opportunity to review the IADS department structure and to look at how we are organized.
Please join me in congratulating Jerrie on this new position. I am sure she would appreciate all of our support and encouragement as she takes on this new challenge.
