Shirley Greene retires after 42 years with UK Libraries

Shirley is retiring as serials check-in technician in the Print Serials Unit effective January 4, 2017. She began her UK career as a library technician at the Medical Center Library in 1974. As the library transitioned from a print based process to online check-in, Shirley rose to the challenge taking computer classes to improve her skills and working with a variety of Integrated library systems over the years.

“I was very pleased to have Shirley join us in Young in 2010,” says Catherine “Kate” Seago, director of Acquisitions. “She has been our lead person handling print serials check in for several years now. She is very conscientious and takes great pride in getting the journal issues out accurately and quickly. She has also regularly made contributions to UK Libraries by serving on the hospitality committee, and to the university by her service on the University Staff Appreciation Day committee.”

Kate adds that all of Shirley’s supervisors have consistently pointed out Shirley’s easy communication with patrons and fellow staff members, her willingness to work on a variety of projects, and her attention to detail.

Thank you Shirley for your service and best wishes for the future.
