Randall Library staff gathered on August 12 for their first library before you
“all staff” meeting since University Librarian visit?
Sarah Barbara Watstein came on board.
The “all staff” meeting was distinguished not
by its objectives, but by its format, and
specifically a challenge posed to staff in
advance of the meeting. Staff was asked to
define Randall Library and to submit their “definitions” on
recycled printed catalog cards in advance of the
meeting. At the meeting, staff took turns reading aloud
the various responses. Taken individually or collectively,
they provide a snapshot as to how staff feels about
Randall Library. Engaging with these “definitions” offers
a unique opportunity to take the pulse of Randall Library,
and a unique opportunity to appreciate the incredibly
rich resources that staffs themselves bring to their work
and to the University.
