Opportunity for Staff Leadership

The Staff Development Committee reviews Staff Development Fund applications and advises the University Librarian on matters relating to career development within the Library. In addition, the Committee sponsors programs which supplement existing in-service training and orientation programs and which support staff library career-related interests. SDC also sponsors the Library's Staff recognition award, an annual award honoring excellence in staff performance and contribution to the Library. Committee members serve a two-year term, and the Committee is currently seeking nominations to fill 5 staff vacancies. For more information about the committee and its charge please go to http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/Staff/SDC/

New members will be working with SDC Chair, Fatemah VanBuren, Librarian representative AnnMarie Mitchell, Organizational Development Subcommittee member Cam Olen, and Ex Officio member Kay Starkweather. Special concerns of the committee in the coming year include:

  • Full utilization of the SDC funds (zero balance at the end of the year!)
  • Sponsoring programs for Library staff on training and career development
  • Supporting a dialogue between staff and managers to promote career development and training opportunities within the Library for all staff
  • Sponsoring brown bag lunches to provide staff opportunities to discuss training and development needs with Administrative Group members
  • Tours of campus locations of interest to staff

If you are interested, feel free to contact any current SDC member and ask questions! A membership list is on the above website. Please send nominations, including a statement of why you would like to serve on the committee to either of the SDC Co-Chairs, Lea Mascorro lmascorr@library.berkeley.edu, or Cam Olen cfolen@library.berkeley.edu by Friday, August 31. We do encourage self-nomination, but ask that you check with your supervisor for approval prior to sending us your nomination. If you are new to the Library, we also hope you will apply, as we are eager to have the widest possible range of staff experience represented on the committee.

European Librarians to Visit Cal Library

On August 29 & 30, nine library directors from Europe will be visiting the Library after attending the IFLA conference in Boston. They will be spending time with Jim Spohrer, Pat Maughan, the Teaching Library staff, John Ober from CDL, and the Business & Economics Library staff. Michael Cotta-Schonberg from Copenhagen will be making a presentation to Library Cabinet on his experiences in leading organizational renewal and change.

Prytanean Centennial

The Prytanean, the first women's honor and service society of its kind in the United States, was begun one hundred years ago. Its tradition of service to the university began with lobbying for the establishment of the Students Infirmary and continues with the Prytanean Faculty Award, with many other benefactions along the way, for which the organization was awarded the Berkeley Citation. The current exhibit in the Rowell Case, second floor Doe Library, celebrates this centennial with documents, pictures and memorabilia and will continue through October when the fifth volume of its continuing oral history series is completed with a ceremony in the Morrison Room.

Mark Twain On-line

The staff at the Mark Twain Papers & Project are delighted to announce the completion of their completely redesigned web site. Its new look was created by the talented team of Pam Daniels of Library Technical Services (currently on a year's rotation at the California Digital Library) and Mary Scott of Library Graphics. The Library's own intrepid "Webman," Lisa Weber, did the final tweaking. The site now has a handy navigating menu so that one can sail along fearlessly and come ashore at will, as well as images of Mark Twain and his manuscripts, a second exhibition, and a News & Notes section that we will update as needed. We invite all Library staff to tour through it. The site address is: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/BANC/MTP/
