This quarter the library welcomed new library staffer Rebecca Ernest and spent significant time on staff training to get her acquainted with various library systems, including a "Boot Camp" training session for Springshare resources. Gil Kenner attended the TRB 98th Annual Meeting as a member of ABG40 the Library and Information Science for Transportation Committee. He also began work on a new Transportation Planning Data Sources LibGuide with VTRC senior research scientist Lance Dougald. Finally, Kenner had a series of meetings with Ken Winter and Wade France (VDOT's learning technology manager) about changes to the Skillsoft Books database (formerly known as Books24x7).
