We've Learned: Retirements and Job Openings

We’ve Learned… is designed to keep our readers informed about news concerning personnel in Central MN libraries/media centers. Please keep CMLE informed of any “happenings” of staff members in your area so that we can include them in the next write-up! Happenings can include: staffing changes, job postings, awards, honors, accomplishments… you get the idea!

Retirements or Staffing Changes in Libraries/School Media Centers

  1. Fred Hill, Reference Librarian, Professor, SCSU Library
  2. Karen Thoms, Professor,  Informedia Services, SCSU Library

Can you help us fill in the blanks? We want all of your staffing changes big or small.  Schools literally “fall off our radar” if someone retires, their email is shut down, and we are unaware that we need to make contact with the new recruit in the Fall! Even if a new hire is unknown, our staff will give proper accolades to the retiree, and make contact with the new recruit to ensure each organization has access to needed services.  Please send staffing changes to cmle@stcloudstate.edu
