~ a reflection by colleague and friend Sue McFadden Did you ever meet Lora Baldwin? Lora Baldwin was a student at IU East in 1980, she became a librarian on campus in 1985, and we became friends in 1987.

Through committee work, community service, and her role as a librarian, Lora met many people and many may remember her smile and friendly demeanor.

But you still need … Continued

Appreciation for Student Staff

Appreciation for Student Staff

“Healthy IU” is a program that promotes wellness of faculty and staff. Recently they featured a “Common Good” project, to enhance our community of caring. Activities included the practice of gratitude. As we reflect on what we are grateful for at work, one of the first that comes to mind is student staff. Here at the IU East Campus Library we are fortunate to have exceptional students who work well to ensure we provide excellent service. They also work on a variety of special projects, from oral histories to research to academic enrichment programs. We appreciate each of our Fall 2017 student staff and want you to meet them!
