The Wyoming State Library’s WYLD Office has some staff changes. Bobbi Thorpe, Bibliographic Services Librarian, has retired after more than 30 years with the WSL.
People don’t always realize all the ways that the work of catalogers and technical services experts like Bobbi improves the patron and staff experience in a large, shared system like WYLD. Bobbi’s knowledge of cataloging standards and willingness to train and mentor library staff throughout the state in best practices will be greatly missed. It will be difficult to fill her shoes, but the WYLD Office will be able to bring on a new person to fill the position soon.
Cori Hundley will soon be joining WYLD as the new Systems Librarian. Cori comes to the Wyoming State Library from Central Wyoming College where she has gained experience managing circulation staff and the IT help desk.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring someone on board who already has several years experience as an end-user in the SirsiDynix Symphony system and familiarity with WYLD libraries in general,” said Desiree Saunders, WYLD Program Manager.
Cori will start her new position at the WSL in early August. The systems librarian position was vacated when Katie Rahman was promoted to System Administrator earlier this spring.
Happy retirement, Bobbi! I will really miss you.
Wonderful Bobbi! Congratulations! You will be missed!
Who ya gonna call? RDA Busters! Thanks for the memories, Bobbi. Come see us up in Park County. Stop by Hot Springs and Meeteetse on the way up. You can stay with me.
WSL and the entire Wyoming library community will miss relying on your wealth of knowledge. Congratulations Bobbi and happy retirement!
