News from Around the Libraries


Survey and Website Announcement
The St. Paul Strategic Facilities Plan will create a vision for the future of the St. Paul Campus that is financially, academically and physically sustainable. The plan will consider the academic culture, programs and facilities of the St. Paul campus and produce a recommendation that considers the long term administrative and student needs of the campus for the next 30 years.
 
We want to hear from you!  An innovative, interactive survey tool has been developed to gather input from the entire University community. The survey is a map-based tool, asking respondents to identify how you use the campus today, focusing on features and activities. Share where you like to work or relax, how you move around, what you love about the campus or what opportunities you see for improvement.
 
You may access the survey at this link. Please share this with others who have a point of view to communicate as well.
 
The survey will be live between Feb 13th and Feb 25th. Responses will be mapped and reported as part of the planning process, and are expected to inform recommendations for physical changes and enhancements to the campus.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to share your input about the future of the St. Paul Campus through the survey.

Staff Tidings & Kudos


And She is Out!
Sue Koelmel, a valued utility player for the Acquisitions & e-Resource Management (ARM) team (formerly Technical Services), is calling it quits after 36 years.  Sue will play her "last game" on Friday, March 2. She will be leaving us to pursue other adventures, including spending more time with her favorite team, the Minnesota Twins.
 
On and off the field, many team members, especially those in ARM and DMA (Data Management & Access) have benefitted from Sue's effective organizational and project management skills as well as her leadership. She has always been a true team player. In 1994, she took advantage of free agency and tested her skills with other teams, but was re-acquired in 2002. She came off the bench in 2002 to help with Aleph implementation and liked that so much that she stayed extra innings for another system implementation. Sue will be sorely missed by her many friends, colleagues (and fellow Twins fans) in the Libraries. 
 
Sue doesn't want a World Series kind of retirement celebration, but we can't let her leave without celebrating her many home runs at the Libraries. Please join us for an open house on Thursday, March 1, 9:00-11:30 in the Wilson Staff Lounge, before she walks off the field and begins the next part of her life.
