For librarians working at colleges and universities, the end of the summer signals the inevitable approach of a wave of new faces. No, not students. It's time to meet the new faculty hires!
At Loyola Marymount University, every August has brought as many as 40 to 60 new full-time faculty from across the campus's six academic colleges. Orientation for new faculty occurs during the weeks leading up to the start of the fall semester. For the past few years, this three-day event has included a tour and reception hosted by the William H. Hannon Library.
