Sierra College

sabrina-pape-sierraSabrina Pape  has replaced Brian Haley as the new Dean.  She reports that  “for the past 18 years, I was the Director of the Library at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, a small (2400 students, all undergraduates) elite private liberal arts college. (And, yes, Vassar is co-ed, has been since 1969!). My budget for library materials alone was $2.7 million (yes, quite different from my acquisitions budget at Sierra!). Prior to that, I served as Associate Library Director, and as Music Librarian, all at Vassar. At Vassar I was responsible for a number of initiatives. Chief among those was a large addition and renovation of our library building, a beautiful collegiate gothic building built originally in 1904 (if you Google Vassar images, the library will come up for sure, as it is the iconic Vassar building) and my involvement in a consortium project with other private NYS academic libraries that started ConnectNY

(see: Personally, accepting this new position is a huge change, literally across the country, but I have family in northern California and am beyond excited about not facing snow, ice and freezing temps in the winter ever again!!”
