1. NEW MEYER CIRCULATION DESK

Over Spring Break, the circulation desk function moved from the second floor Technology Desk in Meyer Library to Room 161 on the first floor, where the Library Associates/Sally Treadway's office used to be. Items that will be circulated from this desk will be Language Lab tapes and accompanying manuals, texts, miscellaneous software and manuals, audio-visual equipment, and the illustrious wall maps that used to live in the Meyer 354 closet. Although the first floor is open on a 24-hour basis, hours of operation for this circulation point will coincide with building hours (http://www-sul.stanford.edu/geninfo/libhours.html) for the second and third floors. Mike Ballard from the Green Library Media/Microtext department will be supervising the mostly-student staff working in "MeyCirc"; stop by and say hi on your way in/out of the building.

2. STAFF CHANGES IN SERIALS

With very little fanfare, Michele Seikel left her position as Order Specialist in Serials to become Serials/Reference Librarian at Oklahoma Panhandle State University.

Linda Polgar will assume Michele's responsibilities for ordering serials, including the government documents of foreign countries. Linda has worked in Serials since 1997, and spent the last eighteen months on a special project to clean up the foreign documents file. Please contact Linda with new standing and unitary orders, as well as any questions you would have directed to Michele in the past. Her e-mail address is lcpolgar@sulmail. Her current phone number is 725-1032. I will update you when her new phone number is in place.

3. PAUL DAVIS MOVES ON TO ACADEMIC COMPUTING

It is with mixed emotions that I announce the promotion of Paul Davis and his departure from Green Library Access Services. In his short stay at the Green Library, Paul has made substantial contributions as Head of Print Reserves and Unicorn Technical Support for SUL/AIR libraries. Paul is a UC San Diego graduate who joined Access Services fresh out of school back in 1998. He made his mark very quickly. Many of you know him because of his role as a lead Expert Partner, for the technical support he provided, for his exemplary public service, or because of his command on issues related to space with respect to SAL and Green Stack.

It's nice to know that Paul will continue to work with us on Course Management Information Systems implementation as it relates to course reserves. He will also help finalize the automating of recalls for SUL/AIR libraries, a project near and dear to his heart; a project on which he worked ever so hard and brought so close to reality. We *thank* our colleagues at Academic Computing for that. Many good wishes to Paul for a successful new career. He will be sorely missed!

Until Paul's vacancy is filled, please direct Unicorn Circ related matters to me (nrz@sulmail), and print reserves queries to Ajit Gellon (agellon@leland).

4. ACADEMIC COMPUTING WELCOMES PAUL DAVIS

I am pleased to welcome Paul Davis as Academic Computing's Consulting Manager for the Meyer and Tresidder clusters.

Paul comes to us from Green Library's Access Services group, where he was Head of Print Reserves and provided Unicorn Technical Support. Paul is a recent UC San Diego graduate who joined Access Services in 1998.

Luckily, Paul enjoys bringing order out of chaos, as well as working with students. Now that Spring Quarter has begun, Paul is taking charge of Meyer Operations at Meyer's second floor Technology Services Desk. He is a very welcome addition to our group.
