Farewell to Library Dean Rick Robison

The library faculty and staff hosted a gathering in the library today to say farewell to our Library Dean, Richard Robison. Rick has been the Library Dean at Cal Maritime for a little more than three years, and in that time he has done much to move the library forward. Some highlights include:

  • A much-needed upgrade to the circulation system, at a bargain price due to a partnership with Sonoma State
  • New group study space, very popular with students and helping keep noise levels down in other parts of the library
  • Membership in Link+, the super-fast borrowing service from other libraries
  • Expanded early and late hours, in response to student requests
  • Expanded DVD collection, with both popular and educational titles

We’re wishing Rick well in his new position as Dean at Diablo Valley College, which starts next week.
