Ohlone College Welcomes New Public Services Librarian

The Ohlone College Library is very pleased to announce our new full-time Public Services Librarian, Simeon (Sim) Castro. Sim has worked at Santa Clara City Library and San Jose Public Library in a number of roles: Library Assistant, Digital Literacy Internship/Library Consultant, and Library Page. Sim earned a Master of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University, a Bachelor of Arts in English from San Francisco State University and an AA degree in Liberal Arts from Ohlone. 
While a student at Ohlone in 2003, Sim worked at the Ohlone Library as a student assistant. In his new full-time librarian role at Ohlone, Sim will have primary responsibility for Library Instruction, Reference, and Outreach. We are delighted to have him back, and look forward to finally working with him in person as well as through zoom!
Sim’s hiring follows the recent retirements of two full-time librarians: KG Greenstein, who served as Information Literacy and Collection Development Librarian from 1999-2017, and who we are delighted to still count as an adjunct librarian at Ohlone; and Barbara Duggal, who joined our staff in 2007 as Coordinator of the Newark Center LRC, and whose last week at Ohlone coincided with the first week of the COVID campus closure. We miss them both and wish them the best in their retirements.
