Sacramento City College
Sacramento City College is currently celebrating its Centennial year. The Learning Resource Center, which houses the Library, will feature a lobby display of 100 Moments and Mementos from December 1-15 and a reception on Thursday, December 8 from 2 - 4 pm. http://www.scc.losrios.edu/calendar/event/scc-100-moments-and-mementos-reception/
The Sacramento City College student-run newspaper, which was founded in 1923 and has gone under the names The Blotter, The Pony Express and The Express, was digitized by Backstage Library Works and is now hosted at the California Digital Newspaper Collection. http://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=cl&cl=CL1&sp=EXP
SCC was awarded funding under the state’s AB 798 Textbook Affordability Program. Antonio López, currently in his second year as a librarian at SCC, led the application effort and will be serving as the Textbook Affordability Campus Coordinator.
Over the summer, SCC brought its DVD collection out from behind a first-floor media circulation desk to the open stacks. All circulation now is conducted from a single desk.
Mary Ann Robinson, who joined the SCC Library nearly 20 years ago, has announced her retirement, effective May 2017. Mary Ann has long coordinated collection development at SCC, compiling annual analyses and materials funding requests, cheerfully reminding area selectors of deadlines, rationalizing selection processes, compiling qualitative and quantitative data on collection needs and usage, getting teaching faculty involved in weeding the collection, and, more recently, investigating and implementing ebook acquisition. She has advocated for the library and for students, helping for instance secure the expansion of study rooms; contributed to staff equity, textbook affordability, and sustainability initiatives; and served as a library liaison to several departments in Allied Health, the sciences, History and other areas. She will be missed dearly by her colleagues, students, and the larger college community.
