Summer 2012 Newsmakers

Sócrates Silva has been appointed to the position of Latin American and Iberian Studies Librarian at the University of California at Santa Barbara as of July 16th. Sócrates has been with HAPI now for almost 6 years and will be sorely missed. Nevertheless, we wish him much happiness and success as he moves on to this exciting challenge and look forward to his continued involvement in SALALM. Please join me in wishing Sócrates well and congratulating him on his new beach-side office!

I am delighted to announce that, effective July 20th, Emma Marschall will be the new Research and Instruction Librarian at The Latin American Library, Tulane University.

Emma comes to us from Gettysburg College where she was most recently employed as a cataloger in the Musselman Library.  Prior to that position she was an Academic Library Fellow at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and Digital Archives Intern at the Missouri History Museum Library and Archives.  From 2006 through 2008 she was Lecturer in Spanish at Washington University in St. Louis.

Emma earned her MLS at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2010.  She has a M.A. in Spanish from Middlebury College (2006) and a B.A. in Latin American and Iberian Studies from Bard College (2001).  She also earned a Certificate in French Language from the Sorbonne (2005).

In addition to her specialization in reference and instruction, Emma also has a strong background in processing digital collections.

In the words of our Dean, Lance Query, “those of us who met with Emma were impressed with her knowledge, experience, energy, and strong inter-personal skills.”  I can add that Emma is sure to be a great colleague and contributor to SALALM.  I know you will all get a chance to meet her in Miami next year, if not before.

Our good friend, colleague, activist, and former SALALM president, Molly Molloy (New Mexico State University), is in the news again.  She will receive the New Mexico Library Leadership Award from the New Mexico Library Association at their annual conference this month.  Kudos, Moll!!!
