Cabrillo College has hired a Technology Services Librarian, Aloha Sargent, who will start her new position in fall 2017. Aloha is filling the position vacated by Stephanie Staley’s retirement in spring 2016. She will primarily be providing coordination for the library’s technology resources as well as oversight for our Technical Services operations – among many, many other things, of course! Aloha comes to us with an extremely wide exposure to the community college world, as she is currently employed as a librarian and instructor part-time at Cabrillo College, Gavilan College, West Valley College, and Mission College!
Aloha also brings a richness of local and statewide experience to her new role, including: chair of Cabrillo’s Distance Education Committee, Cabrillo’s Canvas co-coordinator, chair of the library’s Online Presence Committee, overseer of the library’s LibGuides implementation, certified course evaluator for the statewide Online Education Initiative, and instructor for the statewide @One online training program. Considering what Aloha has contributed already as a part-time librarian, we are looking forward to seeing what she does as a full-time librarian!
