Giving thanks

This year in HC&A, all of us are thankful for the ten months of cooperative effort that led to the creation of this, our new staff work space:

Above: Student assistant Crystal Rodgers has plenty of room for her processing projects!

Above: Even the mighty Indus scanner fits in our new digs!

Believe it or not, this is the first time in almost four years that all HC&A staff have worked together in the same building. Our staff has grown rapidly in the past few years, and we struggled to find appropriate work space in BICC and the Old Library. This fine office space was made available early in 2014. So this year we give thanks to our colleagues in Library Administration, Information & Research Services, and OHSU Facilities & Logistics for helping make it happen. And special thanks to Indus technician Larry Ruud, who finished the job by relocating our overhead scanner last week.

Finally, all of our support staff (currently numbering four student workers, Archives Assistant Jeff Colby, and a to-be-hired Public Services Coordinator) have dedicated work space, and easy access to the supplies and equipment they need to do their jobs! Stop by BICC 243 and say hello if you're in the building!

P.S. As usual, OHSU Library is closed on Thanksgiving, and HC&A will not hold walk-in hours. Enjoy the holiday!
