Milne Library is delighted to welcome our new Business Librarian, Alan Witt, who comes to us from Rivier University, New Hampshire. Alan has B.A.s in Archeology & Medieval Studies from Wesleyan University in Connecticut, & an M.A. in History (Medieval Studies) & a Master’s in Library & Information Studies from the University of Rhode Island.
As you might expect from his educational background, Alan has a wide & eclectic group of interests & activities, including playing board games & gaming in general; acapella music ranging from medieval madrigals to modern pop, aikido (a martial art), baking breads & cookies, & reading, particularly fantasy & sci-fi (e.g., George RR Martin & Jim Butcher). And like many of Milne’s librarians, he is owned by a cat, Alaric.
Since arriving here in Geneseo in November Alan has been working with the faculty of the School of Business to expand the library’s business-related research classes & is looking forward to working with students on their business assignments. You can find Alan on the main floor of Milne Library in the Instruction Librarian “fishbowl,” or reach him at [email protected]. Welcome, Alan…we’re really glad you’re here!
The faculty and staff at Milne Library recognize embracing the College’s ideals of diversity, inclusion, and equity requires us to be engaged with everyone we serve, to hold space for their intellectual development, and to foster their growth as people. Milne Library must remain safe and accessible for all members of the community to pursue their education.
To that end, the library will not accommodate behavior which compromises SUNY Geneseo’s Student Code of Conduct, in particular:
Physical or verbal abuse resulting in intimidation, harassment, or coercion of another person or group of persons…or any other conduct which directly threatens or endangers the health and safety of any person.
While no event reported in the library precipitated this post, we wish to reiterate our commitment to passionate, curious, critical thinkers. You matter. You will always belong here.
