Thanks to Kim Herndon for providing the text for this posting.

It is our pleasure to announce the appointment of Dr. Stephanie Rollins as Reference and Instruction Librarian for the University Library, effective April 4th. Dr. Rollins is currently the Reference Librarian and Branch Manager at the College of Southern Nevada in Henderson, Nevada and is a native of Alabama. Dr. Rollins’ strong professional background with sixteen years of experience in research and access services will complement our already strong Reference and Research Services Department.

Dr. Rollins received a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree in English from Auburn University, and a Master of Library Science and Doctor of Public Administration from the University of Alabama. She is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Library Association, Nevada Library Association, and Mountain Plains Library Association, and was an active member of the Alabama Library Association during her tenure at the Muir S. Fairchild Research Information Center, Maxwell AFB. Dr. Rollins is assuming the position previously held by Harold Goss who became the Chair of Research Services of the University Library on January 1st, 2011. In her role, Dr. Rollins will be responsible for planning, designing, implementing, and assessing library instruction and information literacy initiatives as well as assisting with reference and research services.

We are most grateful to Harold Goss for his hard work this semester, as he assumed his new duties in addition to continuing to fulfill the duties of Instruction Librarian during the search process.

We are pleased to have Dr. Rollins as part of the University Library faculty and we know you will join us in welcoming her in her new role.
