Catherine M. Tierney
by Michael A. Keller

It is with admiration, great respect and a certain sadness that I announce the retirement of Catherine “Cath” Tierney from Stanford Libraries effective 31 October 2014. Cath joined Stanford Libraries 28 years ago and has been a strategic force in our revolution ever since.

Cath’s library career spans 42 years. After 14 years establishing her career at Boston University, she leapt at the chance to make a dramatic change in her life- to accept a junior position at Stanford. She and her husband, Bill, whom many might remember from his days in Library Systems, saw the open road and took it. While at SUL, Cath’s contributions have been significant and have made this library system better and stronger as a result.

Cubberley Library stacks and main reading room, from above
by Kathryn M. Kerns

Cubberley Education Library has developed a series of orientation modules for incoming students available on the Stanford University Libraries YouTube channel. We created these videos because of faculty interest in online instruction and response to student feedback about the deluge of information provided to them during orientation.

Students have access to Stanford resources starting August 1. However, some, especially masters students, need to start their research as soon as possible. The hope was that if we could supply them with all the information they need to get to these resources, the students could begin their exploration even before they arrive on campus.

Is the battle for information literacy over? Is info lit still library territory? Or should it be under partial or total occupation by some other power?

Join us (and the greater library community) in conversation for this month's Chalk Talk in our traditional August reading-group discussion format to consider the command and control of information literacy over time and into the future.
