Happenings @ Hannon
May 2017 (Volume 7.9)
Congratulations to Our 2017 Graduating Student Workers!
The work of the William H. Hannon Library would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of our student staff. Each year, the library employs over 100 student workers to help manage our diverse collections, provide excellent (and late-night) research support services, and promote innovative programming.

Every time you request a book from the basement stacks (something that happens over 13,000 times a year!), a student has to physically retrieve it. Every time you need help locating an article in one of our online databases or learning how to use the library computers (over 10,000 questions were asked last year!), you likely began your research with a student at our Information Desk. Every time you attend a library event (over 40 programs a year!), at least one student had a hand in making that event a success. We are honored to work with such talented and  delightful student assistants.

This year, 42 of our students will be walking across the stage at Commencement on May 6. We would like to take a moment to recognize them and send each of them our sincerest best wishes:

Austin Baker,* Melissa Banks, Sarai Bogoratt, Lauren Brown,* Mikayla Campbell,* Armando Carvalho, Omar Catchings, Kate Chang, Caroline Cordova, Mary Grace Costa, Virginia Doherty, John Fredericks, Aztlan Gonzales, Julia Guanzon,* Victoria Hernandez, Erin Honigman, Nelson Hunter-Valls, Ben Imperato, Kelcey Lorenzo, Scott McDonald, Matthew McPherson, Tyler Metz, Sarah Moore,* Shai Natividad, Taylor Nornes, Lily O'Brien, Elias Ontiveros, Alessandro Perotti, Alex Perroots,* Heather Pilkington, Anna Rizza, Adrian Rodriguez,* Caitlin Ryan, Michael Siao, Stacee Smith,* Brad Steihl,* Lesley Victorino, Kathryn Walsh, Jennifer Walton, Morgan Wilkins, Maya Williams, Kelli Wong

   *indicates having worked at the William H. Hannon Library all four years!

Good luck to each of you in the future. We hope you will look back upon your time at the library with joy and affection. 

Sincerely,
The Staff of the William H. Hannon Library

Remembering Commencement through the University Archives
