On Campus: Adelphi University

On July 29, 2008 Adelphi University Library Director Charles Simpson hosted a regional NYSHEI meeting at the Swirbul library on the Garden City campus.

Joining Simpson and NYSHEI Executive Director Jason Kramer were Bob Martin of Molloy College, Ilona Middleton of Suffolk Community College, Deborah Dolan of Hofstra University, Herb Biblio of LILRC, Ann Minutella, Sarah Pomerantz, Elayne Gardstein, and Debbi Smith of Adelphi.

Following a brief presentation that highlighted the NYSHEI advocacy successes of the past year, Kramer stressed the difficulty of the coming state fiscal year.

“Later today Governor Paterson will announce a growing financial problem and call for new levels of austerity from state government. Funding for new programs, like ARIA, will be virtually nonexistent in the coming months. If we hope to be successful NYSHEI must experience dramatic growth in the participation of librarians in the advocacy process. Frankly, we cannot hope to be success if more librarians join our growing chorus of NYSHEI supporters,” said Kramer.
