Program Review: An Update
By Terry Webb, Library Administration

As I mentioned in the all-staff strategic planning meetings last week, the Program Review Team has submitted a draft of its Program Review of the Library. Because it’s a draft, we will have an opportunity to respond to the report, correct inaccuracies, and make clarifications where needed. Soon you will be able to read and comment on the entire draft. In the meantime, I think it fitting for everyone to see the Team’s commendations of the Library. If you notice any inaccuracies, etc., please let me know.see story


Exhibits: Past, Present & Future: Black Roots for February
By Carol Gebel, Exhibit Committee Chair

The collages by Mark Fox Morgan on the walls of the library’s third floor must include some of the largest works of art that have been shown in any recent library exhibit. Mark tells me that his work has taken a new path into pressed sculpture. We may see some examples in the future. His current exhibit is scheduled for removal on January 28 (weather permitting). We hope you have had a chance to view Mark’s work. see story

Creative Collectives travels to SJSU
If you were unable to catch the second redaction of Creative Collectives at the C. N. Gorman Museum at UC Davis...here's another chance. Creative Collectives, last summer’s CSUS library exhibit, has moved again, morphed and changed names to “Creative Collectives: Live on the Wall”. It is now showing at the San Jose Public/San Jose State University Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. There will be a reception on Saturday, March 19 from 4 to 6 p.m. Check out the website.
