ASSOCIATES (vol. 8 no. 1, July 2001) - associates.ucr.edu
The Editorial Board of Associates says THANK YOU, KENDALL.
Kendall, Editor-in-Chief, recently
wrote to the board:
Kendall volunteered to be Editor-in-Chief
of Associates for its founding issue 8 years ago. She has carved the path for
the quality, direction, and substance of the publication. She has made a tremendous
impact on the awareness and appreciation of library assistants/technicians throughout
the world. We are all proud to be associated with Kendall. Thank you!
Kendall is a hard act to follow. It feels like Kendall has never left-she has had to do the cut-and-paste of the web page and the layout for this issue but I am responsible for the content.
Although I have worked with Kendall for the past 8 years as an editor, we have never met and it was only last week that I spoke with her for the first time. Some of you received the "test" message I sent during July well, I received about 50 million messages that were being looped back to me again, and again, and again. "Help!" I said to Kendall. And once again, Kendall saved the day. Kendall said this was my initiation as Editor-in-Chief and that one day I will laugh at this.
I volunteered to become editor-in-chief because as one of the founding editors of Associates, I am committed to enriching support staff through our fine publication. I am excited to begin this new challenge and hope to continue the excellence that Kendall began 8 years ago.
This issue has our regular features and articles on current topics of interest. Readers may be interested in the articles by library assistants/technicians who attended recent library conferences. They reflect different aspects of the total conference experience.
Please let me hear from you. You
