Celebrating Milestone Years of Service

 

Rod Library could not serve students and the UNI campus community without its dedicated faculty and staff. Each year, the university recognizes employees who have served milestone years at UNI. This year, 11 members of Rod Library’s faculty and staff were recognized for their many years of service. These staff members have dedicated their time to support student success and maintain a library institution that makes the university proud.

When asked about their time at Rod Library, our longest service award honorees had this to say:

Lila Wagner, clerk III, Rod Library

"Working at Rod Library has been a great experience. The energy of all the young students keeps me energized. Even on days when I come in with a negative attitude, helping out the students and seeing them come into the library brightens my day.”

Jeanne Little, library assistant III, Rod Library

"The Rod Library is a great place to be, and I feel very fortunate to have spent so many years being able to interact with the students who use the library, and especially with the student employees I work with. They have all helped me stay invigorated and excited about my job, and continuously bring me a fresh perspective on our campus and on the ways they view the world. I couldn't have picked a better place to spend the last 40 years of my life!”

Kate Martin, Interim Associate University Librarian, Content Discovery Division, Rod Library

"For over 35 years I have been involved as a Library faculty member in the acquisition, selection, and assessment of Library resources intended to support study, teaching, and research.  While formats, processes, and the tools used in these activities have changed over time the purpose has not.  I have enjoyed the many ways in which I have been able to contribute to shaping a collection tailored to the needs of the UNI community.”

This year the University recognized the following people for reaching milestone years of service.
