Slavic and East European Curator Karen Rondestvedt will be retiring from Stanford University Libraries at the end of the calendar year. Karen has held this position since she arrived at Stanford in 2001. Stanford has one of the finest Slavic collections in the US, and Karen was well-prepared to take on these extensive collecting responsibilities following positions in Slavic librarianship at the University of Chicago, where she did her MA in Library Science and her MA and PhD in Slavic Linguistics, and the University of Pittsburgh where she held the post of Slavic bibliographer for 15 years.

The Library Concierge Program is sponsoring tours of the Hoover Library and Archives and Law Library this month.
We have created signups for the tours on the LCP Coursework site so the tour leaders will know how many to expect for each tour.
