Norman Beattie, one of the College’s longest serving staff is retiring from his position as Coordinator, Reference and Public Services effective October 31, 2017.
Norman joined the College in 1981 as Reference Librarian and also served as Acting Director from 2015 to the summer of 2017.
During Norman’s years of service the Library’s services have transformed from a paper based catalogue and collection to a predominately electronically accessible world of information. Throughout all the technological changes Norman has maintained the highest level of service to innumerable students and staff over the years. From serving as a reference librarian at the information desk to instructing groups of students in research methods, Norman has shared his wealth of knowledge and experience with tens of thousands of learners.
We wish Norman a well-deserved retirement.
