The Armacost Library is saying goodbye to our two Visiting Assistant Librarians, Allison Fox and Eugene Owens. Allison has been "visiting" since the fall term of 2006. You may have met her at the Reference Desk or leading a library research session for your class. Allison has also spent substantial time working on the Barney Childs Collection, curating and creating a finding aid for the collection. Allison, and former University of Redlands librarian Verletta Kern, co-presented on the Barney Childs collection at the Music Library Association Annual Meeting, 2008. The Walter Martin Sheet Music Collection is another curatorial project Allison has worked on, in relation to which she has created a bibliography. Allison has been actively involved in surveying and making decisions regarding the Armacost Library's music collection. She has also sorted through a whole lot of donated books over the past few years.

Eugene Owens started his tenure at Armacost Library in November 2008, ready to make a lasting impression on the University of Redlands community. Eugene led the Library's move to Meebo for our IM Reference services and took on responsibility for updating the Library's web pages. Eugene is an enthusiastic reference librarian, and has enjoyed evaluating and making recommendations on our reference and religious studies collections, amongst others.

Please join us in wishing the best of luck to Allison and Eugene in their future endeavors.
