Who’s Doing What in the RML
We’ve been moving responsibilities around in the RML so if you’re a little confused, it’s understandable. We are delighted to have a new Health Information Literacy Coordinator. Monica Rogers [see Introducing Monica Rogers in this issue] is one of two coordinators responsible for leading our health information literacy project. Monica is based at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.
Due to a reduced budget, we downsized a position in Salt Lake City when John Bramble became Technology Coordinator. Jim Honour’s fte was increased and he is now the Wyoming/Member Services Coordinator. Suzanne Sawyer claimed the Utah outreach responsibilities so she is temporarily wearing two hats: one labeled Project Coordinator, the other labeled Utah Coordinator. To keep up with the clerical and logistical support needed to run the RML we hired a part-time student.
There is one more change that we are all anticipating, the successful recruitment for the Kansas/Technology Coordinator based at the Dykes Library in Kansas City. When this coordinator starts in mid-March, the RML will be fully staffed!
