This year recognizes the amazing accomplishment of three University of Wyoming Libraries employees who have each worked at UW for forty years. Collectively, they have contributed 120 years of service to the university.

Kay Hert
Kay started working in Coe Library during the fall of 1978 as a work-study student, shelving books in Circulation. She began working for the Administrative Office in the summer of 1979 and became a full-time benefitted staff member in September 1980. In 1992, she began job-hopping: Technical Services (two decades or so), Collection Development (five or six years), back to Technical Services (now known as Resource Discovery & Management) for a couple of years or so, and then in July 2020, she made it back to the Admin Office — where it all started some 40+ years ago.  And somewhere along the line, she became an accountant.

Pam Reeves
Pam started in 1980 as a part-time Booking Clerk, and then went on to become an Accounting Clerk and later, a Media Specialist in Audio Visual Services (AVS). In 1995, she was promoted to the Manager of Media Services (formerly AVS) until it was closed and then moved up to Circulation. Pam currently works at the Help Desk as the Library Assistant, Senior.

Janet Woods
Janet started her work at the University of Wyoming with the American Heritage Center on June, 23, 1980. After working for nine months as an Archival Processer, she then moved to the Brinkerhoff Geology Library in 1981. After three years, she moved to her current position as Supervisor of Library Services in the Resource Discovery and Management (RDM) division.
