This summer, Cal Poly’s Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA) recognized Judy Drake for her tireless efforts in support of both students and the BFSA. Judy is a library services specialist in Access Services, and has been serving the students and campus via her work with Kennedy Library for 42 years.
Kaila Bussert joined Cal Poly on July 7 as the new Foundational Experiences Librarian.
Kaila will work across the campus to develop instructional and recreational programming to support the development of competencies and literacies that are the underpinning of a successful comprehensive polytechnic education.
Kennedy Library has been working with the Graphic Communication department in the College of Liberal Arts on a recent gift to Cal Poly, the E.H. Wadewitz Collection, donated by the Printing Industries of America.
