Libraries Strategic Plan - Preliminary Planning Themes
By Terry Webb, Library Administration
The CSU Council
of Library Deans (COLD) is about midway in its work of developing a new
strategic plan. Have a look at the planning themes and objectives because
they will involve us in two ways.

don't know if there is anyone around that remembers Bobbie. I worked
with her, but then again I’ve been at the library since the
age of 10....
Edeline Sullivan died on September 20, 2004, of rheumatoid arthritis.
Her last months were at the Quiburi Mission Samaritan Center in
Benson, Arizona. Bobbie worked at the old library (Lassen Hall)
hiring and placing student assistants in the different departments
of the library. At that time student assistant employment was part
of the Circulation Department. Bobbie met Bill Sullivan while working
night shift in Circulation; were married and moved to Prescott,
Arizona and later to Tucson. After Bill's death, Bobbie remained
in Tucson but later moved to Wilcox, AZ to be near her son, Robert,
who has cancer. She is survived by her son, his wife Diana, and
her granddaughter, Claire.
