Joanna Haney, Watzek Library’s Coordinator of Research Services, retires this month after 24 years of service at Lewis & Clark. Joanna first joined the library in September 1988 as a half-time Reference Librarian and has been the collection development and liaison librarian for Biology, Chemistry and Physics since the mid- 1990s. She currently serves as the library liaison to Religious Studies, Counseling Psychology and Psychology as well.
As Coordinator of Research Services, Joanna oversees the library’s reference desk where librarians interact with students to assist them with research questions. Joanna is known for her commitment to high standards of service at the reference desk, a Watzek Library tradition.
Joanna has been instrumental in the library’s provision of online resources, beginning with her mediation of Dialog database searches in the early 1990s. For a decade and a half Joanna has managed the library’s extensive list of research database subscriptions and served as the library’s representative to the Electronic Resources program of the Orbis Cascade Alliance.
A reception for Joanna will be held on Thursday, December 13 from 3 to 5 pm in Gregg Pavilion. We invite the entire campus community to attend.
