On Nov. 20 Alissa Hafele joins the Metadata Department as our new E-resources Metadata Librarian, succeeding Shelley Doljack in that position. Alissa will be responsible for providing bibliographic access to the many e-resource packages that SUL purchases or subscribes to. She will also be involved in the ongoing maintenance and development of SearchWorks, serving as "data analyst" for the SearchWorks team, and responding to SearchWorks feedback.
Prior to joining the Metadata Department, Alissa was a Rare Map Cataloger at the Branner Earth Sciences Library, and before that, she worked as an assistant editor for a publisher in Germany. She has a BS in Photography from Drexel University, and received her MLIS from the University of Pittsburgh.
Fortunately for us, Shelley is not going away. Instead, she will be transitioning to a new position called the Discovery Metadata Librarian. The focus of this new position will be on the accessioning of digital objects and their metadata into the Stanford Digital Repository and ensuring that they can be effectively discovered and retrieved in SearchWorks.
Please join me in welcoming Alissa and Shelley to their new positions. They are both located in Meyer area 370. I hope you will stop by to say hi the next time you visit Meyer.
