After 39 years of service to Indiana University Libraries, Rhonda Long (ILL Borrowing Supervisor) will retire on Dec. 7, 2012.  Rhonda worked in many areas of the libraries: Kinsey Library, Wells Library-Regional Campus Libraries, IU Archives and the Wells Library ILL/DDS Borrowing.

As the leader of the ILL Borrowing function, Rhonda has always been an advocate for requestors, whether they are faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students or staff.  Her diligence and determination to deliver all available items is a reflection of commitment and service to library patrons.  She understood user expectations well and worked to supply research materials as quickly as possible.  The high reputation of the libraries' ILL service is due in no small part to her hard work and skill.  Rhonda has been recognized often in faculty publications whose research she and her staff supported by filling borrowing requests effectively and efficiently.

Hanukkah starts this Saturday, December 8 and ends Sunday, December 16!  Also known as the festival of lights, Hanukkah commemorates the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem in 165 B.C.E, which had been seized by Syrian-Greek soldiers in 168 B.C.E.  In fact, Hanukkah is derived from the Hebrew word that means "to dedicate."  Hanukkah is celebrated today through various activities, like: reciting the Hallel prayer, singing traditional songs, playing Dreidel, exchanging chocolate Gelt, and of course, lighting the Menorah.  Happy Hanukkah!
