New & Coming Changes

For me, December is always a time to finish things, clean-up, prep for the new year, and take stock, reflecting on what we’ve accomplished. In other years, this has meant sorting paper files, shredding old documents, and dusting my office. While those things are different, in taking stock of little to big projects and our LibraryPress@UF program, we have so much to celebrate!

Practicing Kindness in Crisis (PKIC)

With the pandemic and the move to remote work, the Digital Partnerships & Strategies Department, DEI Librarian, and LibraryPress@UF collaborated to create the “Practicing Kindness in Crisis” series which
offers multiple ways for Smathers Libraries personnel to share what makes them a “whole person.” We’ll have more to share on this important series soon, with several presentations and publications in process.
