Foothill Welcomes New Librarian

Foothill College Library is pleased to welcome Destiny Rivera to the newly created position of Access & Information Services Librarian. After years without a Technical Services Librarian, we look forward to her help in maximizing access in the LMS to library resources, but the position also encompasses providing leadership in reference and helping grow our instruction program and OER initiatives. With an MLIS from San Jose State and an MA in Peace Education from the University for Peace in San Jose, Costa Rica, Destiny brings experience in both public and college libraries to Foothill, along with a commitment to diversity and equity: she is the Programs Chair on the Executive Board of the Diversity in Academic Libraries Interest Group (DIAL), and her proposal on “Demystifying Academic Librarianship: Supporting Librarians of Color Through the Journey from Public to Academic Librarianship" was accepted to be presented at the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color this fall.
