Our “Celebrating Open Access Week” post was in the MU Healthy Today newsletter on Thursday.
Seth Huber at the University of Missouri-Columbia has published an article “From Sierra to FOLIO: Cataloging Perspectives on Migration and Post-Implementation Impact” in the latest issue of the open access technical services journal TCB: Technical Services in Religion & Theology. (Note: The article is not in any way restricted to the field of religion and theology, but is part of a special issue dedicated to system migrations.) Some of the other articles in the issue cover data cleanup and migration planning more broadly.

That’s the name of the newest endowment at University Libraries! Thanks to Anne Morgan, our colleague in Mizzou’s Office of Planned Gifts, we now have a “Happiness” fund that will provide funding for our library student workers. Anne committed to celebrate paying off her student loan and said, “I wanted to do something to pay it forward to my people. I love libraries and the people that work for them. I hope my gift will help a few students get through college with a little less debt.” The fund will be used to provide a modest hourly pay increase for selected Level II student workers.
Anne is generously creating this fund with a $100,000 pledge from her estate and has already begun making monthly gifts by payroll deduction to enable us to make use of the fund during her lifetime. Anne is encouraging others to give to the Happiness fund, and if you’d like to get in on the happiness, please contact Matt Gaunt or Nick Raines in the Libraries Advancement Office.
