HCCC Library Winners @NJLA Conference

On June 1st, two of our staff were presented with awards at the recent NJLA Conference in Atlantic City. Mei Xie won for her achievements in Technical Services, and Devlyn Courtier won the Technology Award.

Leading the Library catalog migration from SirsiDynix to open-source Koha, Mei updated library catalog records to RDA standards, modernized the library’s authority file and subject headings, improved access to electronic resources for all users, and added support for emerging technologies such as linked data.

Devlyn, along with Johnathan Cintron (a former HCCC employee), won the NJLA Technology Award for their application of Raspberry Pi technology to advance the current manual door count to an automated system. By building three different prototypes using lasers, PIR (passive infrared sensor), and ultrasonic technology, they created devices which can collect and transmit door counts to a database, making record keeping much easier.

Memorial Day Hours

Please note that the Main and North Hudson Libraries will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observation of Memorial Day. Library electronic resources will remain available during this time. Both Libraries will reopen with regular hours on Tuesday, May 29.

Have a safe and happy holiday!

Books I have read … or am reading

I am in the midst of reading all the entries in the Hogarth Shakespeare series. These are retellings of Shakespeare’s tales by prominent, contemporary authors. Since I find the originals difficult to enjoy and understand, I thought I would have a go at these covers. Intriguing! Click on the images to find the locations in our library collection or just hover to get the call numbers.

Best of reading!
