Holland Library's Electronic Resource Librarians: A Profile of These Positions

The two individuals chosen (B. Jane Scales and Lou Vyhnanek) already had interests and skills in working with electronic resources. They were the people others always turned to for help with problems related to these new technologies. The position title changes made official what was already happening in the work performed by these individuals. In keeping with the traditional collection development boundaries in Holland Reference Services, one librarian became the "Electronic Resources Librarian, Humanities" (Scales), and the other became the "Electronic Resources Librarian, Social Sciences" (Vyhnanek).
