new faces, strange places, and really big books

Posted on June 14th, 2005 by

We’re very pleased to announce that Jay Nordstrom and Sonja Timmerman have accepted positions as Circulation Manager and Collections Manager in our library. We had a terrific pool of candidates and are looking forward to having a new colleague in Sonja and new horizons for Jay, who has been managing our serials operations during years of amazing change.

People love books, but this house may be taking things a bit far. I mean, curling up with a good book is one thing, but curling up in a book? Besides, the stories on those shelves look a bit … wooden.

As long as we’re going to extremes, how about this addition to the University of Minnesota’s collections? Not recommended for reading in bed – it weighs 130 pounds. Our J-term class got an advanced peek and it’s …. big! Really big! The printing process alone was quite a technical feat.
