Shout-outs From My Colleagues

I would like to shout-out to my team, the Monographs Unit of A&D department, Renee Smith-Davis, Flora Blackley, Rob Loomis, Terri Chance and Zorica Craciun, for all they have had to endure this last year. These folks took to their work at home as if they had been doing it all along. There were enormous challenges, lots of new workflows, keeping up with Zoom, computer issues and the struggles of communication, or lack there of. And with the focus on electronic exploding there were plenty of e-related projects to ensure access, especially for open access, notifications to faculty as soon as their request was accessible, more and more streaming orders and plenty of print for Reserves that all needed hands on cataloging. The volume for these materials has not yet dropped as in normal years so they all continue to order and pay and catalog and absorb the new changes that come their way, but the remoteness is still a struggle. Credit certainly goes to our Unit Head, Lynn Whittenberger, who provides amazing caring and support to all of us, no matter what the need. Thanks also to our ERL Yan Song for lending support and guidance through much of the electronic work. I am very fortunate to be part of this unit and department. Ruth
