Congratulations to Newly Tenured Librarians!

Better late than never -- Rio Hondo College Library is proud to announce that 3 of our full-time faculty librarians have been granted tenure in Spring 2022!

Librarian Young Lee previously worked as an attorney until he made a career change and worked as the Reference and Electronic Services Librarian at the University of La Verne Law Library. Young joined Rio in November 2017 and has since been our de facto Electronic Resources Librarian (and provider of donuts, pastries, and other sweets to our Library Division).

Librarian Claudia Rivas started at Rio as a student, then as an adjunct instructor, and then as an adjunct librarian until August 2018 when she became a full-time librarian. Claudia has accomplished many feats in Library Outreach, including increasing our social media presence, obtaining library swag for student giveaways, and introducing Zines to Rio students through library workshops and orientations.

Librarian Brian Young started at Rio as a Library Intern while attending San Jose State University for his MLIS. Shortly after completing his program, he joined Rio as an adjunct librarian and eventually became full-time in August 2018. Brian is our editor-in-chief for our library newsletter (called The Library Checkout) which is published every semester to inform faculty and students with library-related news.

Congratulations to all!
