We are pleased to announce that our Library Technician, Mary Kennery, has won the 2013 Excellence in Support Services Award at Durham Tech. This prestigious award is presented to an employee who promotes excellence, innovation, and dedication in service to the students and to the larger community of Durham Tech.
Mary is an exceptionally productive team member at both the Main campus and Orange County campuses. She is extremely hard working behind the scenes ordering, processing, and cataloging materials for the library. Mary really helps us to keep the library running smoothly on a daily basis. She is dedicated to serving students, faculty, and staff, and always goes the extra mile to help library patrons. Mary has an enormous heart and volunteers for campus service projects.

It’s close to time for exams, but the library has another kind of testing already going on. We’re trying out new chat software that lets us IM with students, faculty, or anyone else who needs assistance. To start talking with us, go to the library homepage and click on the chat icon in the middle of the page, near the bottom. If we’re available to chat, the icon looks like:
If we’re not available, a different icon indicates that we’re away. Chat with us, and let us know what you think! We hope that this will help library services be more widely accessible, helping us reach patrons who may not be able to come into the library because of distance, work schedules, or other issues. Even if you’re in the library, though, we’d love to chat with you!
