Bon Voyage, Jean!

The faculty and staff of Armacost Library wish our esteemed Library Director Jean Swanson a fond farewell. Jean will retire in May 2007 following twenty years of service to the University of Redlands and the Armacost Library. In her time at the University of Redlands Jean has supervised and participated in the Armacost Library’s continuing evolution. Under Jean’s leadership the Library has moved from the card catalog through a CDROM-based catalog to the current online catalog. (Oh, how things have changed!) In that time the Library has added access to thousands of electronic journal subscriptions, thousands of e-books, over 100 online databases and hundreds of online music recordings and has acquired thousands of new books. In addition, Jean has authored three books on mystery literature. Jean Swanson is recognized as a trusted colleague and an insightful, conscientious leader by the Armacost Library faculty and staff and by the University of Redlands at large. We celebrate Jean's career and wish her the best retirement has to offer.
