Staffing Changes at Springfield College's Babson Library

David A. McMahon is our new Patron Services Specialist and student supervisor. He comes to us from Yale University where he staffed the Information Desk at the Social Science Library. In addition to his Access Services background, he has experience with book preservation, reference, cataloging and most other aspects of library work.

Jeffrey Monseau is our new College Archivist. Jeffrey is a recent graduate of the Simmons College Graduate School of Library Science with a concentration in Archives Management. Over the past year and a half he has worked on a number for a number of archival programs and projects, including the Central Massachusetts Regional Library Service as the “Circuit Rider” Cataloger/Archivist, helping in the preservation, preparation and presentation of digital images for Digital Treasures, an innovative, collaborative digital collection for Central and Western Massachusetts; Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Theo Brown diary project, a project to digitize and provide access and connections to over sixty years of journals, images and engineering designs; and Mount Holyoke College Archives and Special Collections, creating images and designing projects for their Digital Collections. He is kept in line and sane by his very inventive, energetic, and inquisitive young son, Satchel (as in baseball great Satchel Paige), who brightens his humble home in Northampton, Massachusetts.
