Farewell, Vicki! A year and so much more

Today is the last day of work for Victoria Billings, our intrepid communications and public programs student assistant. Of course, this is the right thing considering she is now a Cal Poly journalism graduate. The world awaits! A world, I hope, in which she can use her fluent French and fluent writing skills. But, even though this day had to come, it is still bittersweet.

We’ll miss you, Vicki! Your sense of humor, creative ideas and muscle-y brain power were truly appreciated. Please keep us informed of your latest and greatest conquers in the field. We will be rooting for you all the way.

Pièce de résistance

Vicki has been working on a retrospective of sorts, a year in review of her work and internship. There was a lot to cover! After all, this was truly a Journey Into Libraryland.

So, I’m delighted to introduce Victoria Billing’s final video project for Kennedy Library, A Year and So Much More. A story, it turns out, that can best be told in clay.

It was a blast working with you, Vicki! Seriously.

Please leave your good wishes for Vicki in the comments.

Our year in review

It’s about that time — when we think about where we’ve been over the last year and what we hope to do in the year ahead. It’s a good time to check-in, reflect and aspire. For me, this often involves making lists with pen and paper. For the library, it means our annual publication is completed and shared with our community. This week we bring you stories about the library that highlight our goings-on of the last year and that look ahead at what we hope to accomplish in 2012.

What you’ll notice in reading our annual publication is that we are a truly user-driven place both in our physical being and online. We love to listen and work hard to make choices that make sense for students, faculty, staff and the larger community. It’s rewarding work.

Find our interactive annual publication on our website, where you can also download the PDF. There you can see photos taken by students and staff, watch stop-motion videos of construction projects and see some spooky fun. You can also read about exciting additions to our special collections and meet people who are making a difference for those who use the library. Check it out!
