On Thursday, August 16, 2012, WKU Libraries’ faculty members participated in WKU’s New Faculty Orientation Program taking place in the Western Room of the Kentucky Building. The program was an annual event sponsored by the Provost’s Office.
Interim Dean Connie Foster addressed the audience of newly hired faculty members that included one of our own—Lisa Miller, Visiting Assistant Professor and Humanities & Social Sciences Librarian. In her address, she highlighted WKU’s institutional repository TopSCHOLAR. Head of Library Public Services Brian Coutts presided over the orientation session and gave the overview presentation of the Libraries. He was followed by WKU Libraries’ faculty members Jack Montgomery, Professor, Collection Services Coordinator, who introduced the liaison/subject librarian system; John Goffried, Assistant Professor, Coordinator of Reference Services/ Business Librarian, who introduced WKU Libraries’ website; Bryan Carson, Professor, Special Assistant to the Dean for Grants & Projects/ Coordinator of Periodical & Instructional Services, who gave a presentation on the Libraries’ literacy and research instruction services; Roxanne Spencer, Associate Professor, Coordinator of Educational Resources Center presented the Libraries’ branches; and Sue Lynn McDaniel, Associate Professor, Special Collections Librarian, familiarized the audience with the Special Collections Library.
WKU Libraries also showcased a booth along with other WKU divisions in the Kentucky Building. Nancy Richey, Assistant Professor, Image Librarian, and Jack Montgomery spent their time receiving visits from the new faculty.
