Ellen Bahr Information Systems Librarian and Interlibrary Loan Coordinator at Herrick Library, is interested in how small academic libraries can best use technology to deliver and support library services. She is currently focusing on learning new technology skills, especially for digitization (ask her about metadata and XML). When she’s not at her desk, you may find her photographing books in the library stacks.
Eva Sclippa Art Librarian and Coordinator of Instruction at the Scholes Library, Eva’s interests include artists’ books, illuminated manuscripts, and medieval art in general. Say “illuminated manuscript marginalia” if you’d like to hear her talk for several hours, apparently without inhaling.
John Hosford Digital Projects Librarian at Scholes Library, when not saying the word digitize, either out loud or in my head, I can be found, visiting one of the other three libraries in the village of Alfred, driving the Ambulance, or just hanging out at home.
Mark A. Smith Mark is Associate Dean of Libraries and Director of Scholes Library at AU. His current professional interest is in assessing “Value” in academic libraries. In the evolving information landscape and multi-format environment, a library’s value to its community is less about the “stuff” it collects, and more about making “connections” to information. Mark is thinking about how we can best capture and express the “value” of library-enabled “connections.”
Stephen Crandall Dean of AU Libraries, and Director of the Herrick Library, Steve is interested in film and has used patron suggestions to build a sizeable recreational DVD collection for the AU community. Of course, the films and TV shows are also used for educational purposes.
