Welcome back Kate Pitcher!

It seems like only yesterday that the staff at Milne Library was celebrating the birth of little Silas Goodrich, Collection Development Librarian Kate Pitcher’s second son. The entire family, including big brother Griffin, are thoroughly enjoying their growing clan and life is busy and wonderful.

We welcome Kate back from maternity leave and surround her with lots of support as she jumps right back into the swing of things by leading the library’s first Faculty Luncheon. As the librarian in charge of book budgets and the lofty task of diversifying and balancing Milne Library’s collections, Kate and her fellow library colleagues will host an informal lunch for faculty, comprised mostly of Department Chairs and Library Representatives, on Wednesday April 7 between 12-1:30. Topics to be discussed include scholarly publishing initiatives, material budgets and departmental allocations and a working document of collection development guidelines.

We are so happy to have Kate back in the library!
