I’m delighted to announce that Margaret Adeogun has joined Kennedy Library as our Head of Access Services as of March 4, 2014.
During their second visit to campus in February the architectural firm Shepley Bulfinch met again with the Cal Poly community to listen closely to our needs and explore ideas for reimagining Kennedy Library.
The architectural team met separately with the steering committee, building program committee, staff, faculty, academic partners and students. It was a full day!
Kennedy Library is the 2014 winner of the Association of College and Research Libraries’ (ACRL) Excellence in Academic Libraries Award. Are we excited? We certainly are.
For those who may not know, ACRL grants this award to libraries that strive towards the university’s mission as a team. Kennedy Library’s application showcased the many players involved in the “open, inclusive, and connected” dynamic between staff, faculty, and students.
We’re excited and honored that the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) named Cal Poly’s Robert E. Kennedy Library as a recipient of the 2014 Excellence in Academic Libraries Award! We are the first university library in California to receive the honor since it was first given in 2000.
