New Library Associate Dean Announced

rebecca lubas.jpgThe Claremont Colleges Library is pleased to announce that Rebecca Lubas has been appointed to serve as its first Associate Dean. She will begin her new position on March 10.

Rebecca comes to us from the University of New Mexico, where she served as the Director of Discovery, Acquisitions, and Consortial services at the University of New Mexico. Prior to that, she was the Director of Cataloging and Discovery Services.

Rebecca is widely respected throughout the profession in the areas of collection management and technical services, and enjoys an international profile as a metadata specialist. She has broad experience in overseeing library administration and operations and a deep understanding of and appreciation for consortial activities. We're both fortunate and thrilled to have secured Rebecca's services for the Claremont Colleges Library.

Google Glass @ the CCL

daniglass.pngStarting this Spring, the Library will be exploring the teaching, learning, and research potential of Google Glass.

How did the Library get Glass? Late in 2013 a CCL Librarian was invited to become one of approximately 40,000 worldwide Glass "Explorers". By acquiring a pair of Glass, the Library hopes to invite the 7Cs to investigate its academic and pedagogical applications, as well as consider the technological and social implications of wearable technology.

Curious about Glass? Sign up for a hands-on workshop via the (Love Your) Library Workshops calendar.

Want to borrow Glass? Members of the 7C community are invited to submit proposals for short-term use of Glass in teaching, learning, and research. If you'd like to propose an idea for using Google Glass, let us know at http://bit.ly/CCLglass.

FMI: Dani Brecher and/or Char Booth.

(Love Your) Library Workshops galore!

Just like that spring (semester) is here, and we're jumping right into some seriously exciting (Love Your) Library Workshops. Sign up for our newly added Glimpse the Future with Google Glass workshop- you read that correctly- the Library has Google Glass. In addition, there are ample workshop offerings on Zotero, Refworks, Google Scholar, Wordpress, and Creating Infographics (among other things).

Most workshops are in Honnold/Mudd Library's Keck Learning Room (KLR) on the east side of the building, 2nd floor, or in Keck 2, directly above KLR on the 3rd floor. Unless otherwise noted, classes are open to Claremont Colleges students, faculty, and staff. Attention CGU students: LYL sessions count as 'credit' toward the Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Program!
