Shout-outs From My Colleagues
Shout-outs are kind words from Libraries staff to other Libraries staff for going out of their way to be extra awesome at their job.
Whenever I want to know what's going on at Hunt Library, I check in with Julia Reynolds and Glenn Privette. They know. It takes a village to run Hunt Library, but Julia and Glenn are the key players. They know the history of Hunt Library, where everything is hiding, the quirks, and how to solve problems. I'm always glad to see them and know the place is in good hands.

Julia does so much to support the User Research Team, especially when it comes to arranging for participant compensation. Thanks to Julia, we have been able to coordinate dozens of studies that have helped us improve our services, website, and spaces! I’m so grateful for her reliability and sense of humor.

I often say, in all seriousness, that Julia keeps the Hunt Library running. She is reliable, knowledgeable, and creative when it comes to planning and coordinating the happenings around Hunt. She has helped me in more ways than I can count and I am always grateful for her steady presence and rye sense of humor. A lot of her efforts go on behind-the-scenes as she coordinates across multiple units to make sure we deliver a great experience for all. Recently, she helped with the planning and coordination for the vMLK workshop. Dr. Gallagher and Dr. Jones shared their gratitude in the following message: "[we] were so gratified by the excellent arrangements that Julia helped to coordinate for food service (and we want to note that the food was delicious!)" Thank you for everything, Julia!

Julia has a strong customer service orientation that has served everyone well this past year-plus. She began working on site early on during COVID, and from the beginning was helping out wherever she was needed. Some of the duties she took on during COVID included: -Answering the AskUs phones and taking on Hunt on-call Ask Us duties, -Handing out ice cream, etc. to staff as a thank you from the Libraries Admin, -Handing out boxed lunches to student employees as a thank-you from the Libraries, and -Assisting with the training of the new Administrative Support Specialist at Hill. It's been great working with someone who always looks for ways to be helpful to others. Thank you Julia!

I have to give a shout-out to my new Citation Index CV service team. We lost a few student workers to graduation and senior projects over the break and we needed some folks who could quickly get up to speed on ingesting and cleaning metadata from faculty CVs. Like the metadata pros that they are, Barbara Weinberg and David Serxner stepped in to help and Beverly King stepped in to help train by providing quality control reviews of the metadata. Even Julia Reynolds, who is an honorary member of A&D, has helped us out with tackling this work to support our faculty all while she is still supporting our on-site operations. I couldn't ask for better partners in this work as their attention to detail and desire to serve our students, staff and faculty show through in every step. Thanks CI CV service team!
