We are very pleased to announce that Lorna Corbetta has accepted the Student & Evening Supervisor/Head of Reserves, Art & Architecture Library and Collection Development Support, Social Sciences Resources Group (SSRG) Library Specialist 3 position. 

This is a newly configured, three-year term funded position, that combines the traditional responsibilities of the Evening & Weekend supervisor at the Bowes Library with a set of tasks focused on analog and digital collection development, SDR and web archiving support, and other duties to bolster the work of librarians and other staff in SSRG.  June 16th was Lorna's first day working in this capacity.

Lorna brings several years of experience and extensive knowledge of the collections, public service, and operations at several Stanford Libraries, first at Green Library at the time of the Loma Prieta earthquate. During her graduate work at Stanford she had the opportunity to work at the GSB library.  She has been the Arts Serials Specialist at Bowes Library since 2017.  During the past year during the COVID-19 remote/online environment, Lorna took on some of the responsibilities of the evening/student supervisor, most notably course reserves, which had a rapidly changing set of workflows to manage. 

Prior to Stanford, Lorna worked in college libraries and with library automated systems, from implementation to providing training and instruction. She was a Bibliographic Instructor at the Research Libraries Group (RLG), specifically working with art related databases.  Lorna has a MA in Art and Art History as well as a MLS in Library and Information Studies from San Jose State University; she holds a Master of Liberal Arts degree from Stanford. 

Staff from Bowes and SSRG are so very thrilled to have Lorna join our teams in this capacity.
