Staff News

Kudos

The New Georgia Encyclopedia is the 2005 recipient of the Schwartz Prize. This award is made annually by the Federation of State Humanities Councils in two categories: projects and initiatives made possible by Council grant making and projects and initiatives undertaken directly by a Council. The NGE won in the latter category. The NGE editorial staff is based at the Main Library, and the UGA Libraries and its employees have contributed to the NGE in numerous ways. Congratulations to all involved!

Laura Shedenhelm's article "Revolutions on the Radio: People and Issues Related to Revolutionary Movements in Latin America, Audio Gleanings from the Peabody Awards Collection." appears in Trends and Traditions in Latin American and Caribbean History: Papers of the Forty-Seventh Annual Meeting of the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials, Cornell University, June 1-4, 2002.

The Bainbridge Post-Searchlight recently ran a feature story on Tom and Barbara Frieling. Tom will become associate department head in Access Services in January. Read it here.

Library Faces

Joshua Seils, database maintenance


Joshua Seils in his cubicle with what appears to be evidence of a homicide.

Joshua Seils is a new staff member in cataloging/database maintenance. Joshua worked in acquired cataloging for around two years as an undergraduate. He came to Athens to attend UGA and graduated in summer of 2004 with a B.A. in English.

Not surprisingly, Joshua loves to read and also enjoys watching films and being outside. His black cat, Azazel, "totally rocks" and he's a huge fan of the television show "The Simpsons."
