Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you back for the new academic year and to share updates on the teams providing teaching, learning, and research services, along with the attached guide to the rich array of services and programs and best ways to reach these colleagues for consultation and support.

Jenny Spohrer has joined Library & Information Technology Services (LITS) as Manager of Educational Technology Services. We are enthusiastic about bringing educational technology together into a unified team at Bryn Mawr, and the team is committed to delivering outstanding programs and services for faculty, continuing to enable Bryn Mawr’s leadership in the liberal arts blended learning space, and supporting integration of technology into the curriculum and scholarship across disciplines. Contact the team at edutech@brynmawr.edu for consultation or support and visit the “Educational Technology Resources at Bryn Mawr College” page for an overview of the Educational Technology Services team and its services, as well as technologies used and supported on campus: http://libguides.brynmawr.edu/bmc-academictech .

Camilla MacKay has assumed the new position of Manager of Library Research and Instructional Services & Scholarly Communications Librarian, heading the full team of reference and instruction librarians across disciplines and libraries. Having our research and instruction librarians together in one holistic team will facilitate planning for services and programs, and we are excited about all the ways these phenomenally talented and dedicated colleagues will continue to partner with faculty and students across disciplines.
