Diane Brunn, Senior Library Technician and Manager of the ILL Borrowing Unit in Young Library will retire from UK Libraries September 2, 2013. Diane, who worked 13 years in the Documents Department at Michigan State University Library, began her employment at UK in the Agriculture Library in 1981 as the Interlibrary Loan technician. Diane’s knowledge and versatility soon became apparent and she added researching the problem titles in both general serials and in the documents area and general reference to her responsibilities.
Diane’s expertise was also called upon in other parts of the system and she assisted with the regional depository processing in King Library when absences and backlogs occurred. In the late 1980’s, when UK Libraries began automating circulation, Diane took on the implementation of the LS2000 Circulation System in the Agriculture Library.
In 1999 Diane moved to Interlibrary Loan in Young Library. She currently manages the Borrowing Unit, a very active and demanding position where patrons and staff will greatly miss her expertise and dedication. Her joy in reading, music, art and travel will no doubt play into a large part of her retirement. We thank Diane for her 32 years of service to UK Libraries and wish her great happiness in her retirement.
