New Staff Members

Four new staff members have joined the library since last July:

Anna D'Agostino

Anna D'Agostino

Anna joined the staff as Technical Services Assistant on July 19; she was midway through her fourth summer working as a student assistant when a full-time staff position became available. Anna's primary responsibility is the management of the library's serials subscriptions: these include all manner of journals, magazines, newspapers, and other periodicals. Anna graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, in May 2004, with a B. Music in Music Performance (flute) and a B.A. in Spanish Language and Literature. She has played flute and piccolo at the Cockpit in the Court Summer Theatre for the past three years. In September Anna began a program at Catholic University that will lead to a masters in library science. Not only is Anna very familiar with the library from her summers (and winter breaks) working here, she has another tie to the Loyola/Notre Dame community: her father, Alfred D'Agostino, is Associate Professor of Chemistry at the College of Notre Dame.
