Subject: [Consald-l] Alan Grosenheider's new appointment
I would like to inform all of you of my new interim
appointment at the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library as
Associate University Librarian for Administration.
My new portfolio includes Facilities, Fiscal, Personnel,
Planning, Training & Development and--at least for now--Systems. So,
while I have enjoyed following South Asia library issues for the last three
years and serving as the virtual member of ALA/ALCTS/CCS's Committee on
Cataloging: Asian & African Materials, I believe no longer have the time
while I focus upon these new responsibilites.
Please work with CC:AAM Chair,
Nakano [cc'd] email@example.com on identifying a
replacement for me. I served as a virtual member since the standing
meeting for CC:AAM occurred at the same time as the standing meeting of my
LLAMA committee and it was easy enough to provide input on the proposals via
email as needed. Perhaps they will entertain another virtual membership
again. Feel free to contact me if I may help in this transition.
Without having contacted Phil Melzer or Allen Thrasher about
this idea, I will broach a possibility for you to consider: since much of
the South Asia cataloging is performed by the Library of Congress perhaps LoC's
representative to CC:AAM can also serve as the liaison between CC:AAM and
CONSALD or some similar creative solution to guarantee your input on cataloging
policies and standards that affect access to South Asia library materials?
It was a pleasure working with you during the decade I was
at the University of Washington and for the last three years that I have been
here at the University of Hawaii at Manoa as I served as the Assistant to the
University Library; I learned much from listening to you and appreciated all
the good times together while dining on Indian food. And, I hope to
see all of you next year at AAS here in Honolulu!
with warmest aloha,
p.s. And, Mary, I noted on the website that you are managing
the listserv; would you please remove my email?
