2. Karen Rondestvedt Joins SUL as Curator for Slavic and East European Collections; Annette Keogh Joins SUL as Assistant to the Curator for American and British Literature

The new year brought Karen Rondestvedt to the Libraries as Curator for Slavic and East European Collections. Karen fills the position formerly held by Wojciech Zalewski, who is now truly Curator Emeritus, as well as working part-time as Bibliographer for Religious Studies. Karen will be working in the curatorial group in the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Center.

Karen holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in Slavic Linguistics and General Linguistics, as well as an M.A. in Library Science and an M.A. in Slavic Linguistics, all from the University of Chicago. She comes to Stanford by way of the University of Pittsburgh's Library System, where she was Slavic Bibliographer. "In addition to the usual duties," as Karen puts it, she managed the Polish Alliance College Polish Collection and has been co-maintainer of the REESweb, a significant hypertext guide to Internet resources in Russian and East European Studies. She is also the inaugural editor of Slavic & East European Information Resources, a new journal published by The Haworth Press, and has been very active within the community of Eastern European librarians, with long lists of publications, conference presentations, and committee assignments. 

Zachary Baker will be acting as Karen's library mentor while she becomes acclimated to SUL. She will also be working closely with Wojciech and me as parts of her "transition team," as well as the rest of the staff in the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Center. Please feel free to visit and welcome Karen in her brand-new office, which is located in the extension of the McDermott Suite on the third floor of Green Library East.

Also, Annette Keogh has also joined the HASRC to assist Bill McPheron with the American and British Literature Collections. Annette is in the process of completing a Ph.D. dissertation in Stanford's English Department with a dissertation focusing on 18th-century literature. She replaces Jim Kent, who was recently appointed Media Librarian, a new position in the Information Center. While sorry to lose Jim in his old role, we are very happy to replace him quickly and looking forward very much to working with Annette. Please stop by and say hello to her.

3. Falconer Biology Library Welcomes Chris Willrich

Falconer Biology Library is very pleased to welcome our new Circulation/Reserves/Document Delivery Specialist, Chris Willrich. Chris started working at Falconer on December 18, and one of his first projects, while learning about Unicorn circulation and Falconer's document delivery systems, was processing reserve materials for Winter Quarter.

Chris received a Bachelor's degree from the University of Washington and an MLIS from San Jose State University. He managed a one-person library in Seattle, and most recently he worked in public services at Menlo Park Public Library. Away from his "day job", he is a published author of science fiction short stories. He plans to pursue writing while working at Falconer and we look forward to seeing his new stories in print.
