New Academic Law Library Directorship Appointments: Vicki Szymczak (Hawaii) and Teresa Stanton (Florida International)
Vicki Szmczak, Library Director at Brooklyn Law (and long-time LLB contributing editor) has accepted a faculty appointment at the Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaii, and will serve as the Law School's library director. Vicki will be making the 5,000 mile trek to Hawaii to start her new gig on September 26, 2011. Congratulations Vicki. Gonna have a guest bedroom? I can be there on September 27th. (An announcement for the library directorship at Brooklyn Law is posted below.)
Also, congratulations to Teresa Stanton. She has accepted an appointment as Associate Dean for Information Resources at Florida International University Law School. For the last two years she has served as Director of Collections at Berkeley Law, previously as Berkeley Law's Foreign and International Law Librarian. During her 20-plus year career of moving up the ranks in law librarianship, she has also worked at UNC Law Library, U of Miami Law Library and the Dade County (FL) Law Library. She will be making the 2,500 mile trek back to Miami to after leaving Berkeley Law at the end of July.
Have Expertise, Law Librarians Will Travel. By my rough estimate, we are talking about a total of approximately 7,500 miles traveled. [JH]
