Kim Gormley is the new late night supervisor in McCabe Library. She received the M.S. in library and information science from Drexel University and has been working at the West Chester Public Library and the library at the Church Farm School. She worked as an au pair in Paris during the 1997-98 school year and says she was “insane enough to hang around as France hosted, and then won, the World Cup.”
Danie Martin, McCabe Library technical services specialist, ran 60.5 miles and placed first among women in her age group in October’s San Francisco One Day, a Pacific Coast Trail Run event. Danie writes, “It was very rainy but a lot of fun. I’d heard of 24 hour races years ago but had never gotten around to trying it. It was my first win in over 30 years of running. I actually won just because I was the only woman aged 50-59 who entered, so I guess sometimes winning gets easier with age.”
Science Librarian Meg Spencer was invited to participate in a resume review event in October, sponsored by Drexel University’s student chapter of the American Libraries Association. She met with several students working on the Master’s in Library and Information Science, giving advice on their resumes and job search strategies.
Zara Wilkinson started working as the weekend supervisor in McCabe Library in the fall. A part-time reference librarian at Temple University, she received the Master of library and information science from the University of Pittsburgh and worked at Point Park Library in Pittsburgh. She enjoys science fiction, Shakespeare, being with her cat Annabel, and cites “The Man Who Fell to Earth” (Walter Tevis) as her favorite book.
