1. Welcome Renée Barney, Information Literacy and Technology Librarian

Please give a warm Wartburg welcome to Renée Barney as the new Information Literacy and Technology Librarian. She comes to us with valuable experience in academic libraries; we are lucky to have her. 

She has played violin for 38 years and traveled with a music group to Germany where she played in several churches associated with Bach.

When you see her, don't hesitate to stop to say hi and ask about her violin playing!

2. Progress in the library 

During the summer, there have been updates happening in the library. The New Books shelf is now across from the Peer Learning Lab. Graphic novels are located behind the Creation Studio. The reference collection came up from the 1st floor alongside the DVDs.

These changes were made with students, faculty, and staff in mind to make collections and the space more accessible.
