Janice Dost, Head of Library HRD, to Retire

It is with considerable regret, but with thanks for more than a dozen years of dedicated Library service, that I announce the pending retirement of Janice Dost, Director of Library Human Resources. Janice has decided to retire early in 2001 to pursue other life and career interests. During her tenure with the Library, Janice and the LHRD staff have had to manage many difficult changes in a complex University personnel system as the Library cycled through devastating budget and staff cuts, multiple leadership changes and the rebuilding process of the last two years. Through it all, Janice has provided professional insight, leadership for the hard-working LHRD staff, and assistance for those trying to make their way through the University's complicated processes.

During the coming months leading up to Janice's retirement, I will be initiating a transition planning process that will involve widespread Library participation. This will be an opportunity for all of us to look at the changing face of personnel management needs in this University, and to consider alternative ways of meeting them in the coming years. The planning process is an important part of the preparation for recruiting a new LHRD Director and I look forward to gathering the insights of people through the Library. Please stay tuned for further details.
