A. Jones Highlights of Professional Experience Head, Science Reference Department Database Design: As part of the GALILEO Oversight Group, I help to design the search interface and prepare the UMI, OCLC, and Cambridge Scientific databases for use. For the SiteSearch and FirstSearch databases I identify appropriate fields for indexing locally, and advise the programmers on formatting, punctuation, and other display issues. In addition, I write scope screens and extensively test databases for bugs and indexing errors. Awards: On two separate occasions, Sigma Xi’s local chapter has given me their annual award for Technical Support. These awards are initiated by science faculty who are members of this honorary society. I have also received a Libraries Asset Award for Excellence in Service to the Public. Organization: Committee assignments have afforded me opportunities to use my organizational skills. For example, as chair, I coordinated the compilation of the first UGA Libraries’ Faculty Handbook. This task entailed arranging a large body of information into a logical sequence with useful access points. Personnel: As one of three librarians asked to serve on the Vice President for Academic Affairs Search Committee for a Library Director, I met with faculty from diverse departments for many months to define the position, conduct interviews, and evaluate the candidates. Publication: My inhouse bibliography, Reference Guides for the Weatherwise, turned it into a survey of the literature article for Reference Services Review. Subsequently, I was asked to evaluate agriculture journals for Magazines for Libraries. Staff Development: I instituted a continuing program of resource sharing by assigning topics to staff members and asking that they report on the scope and ease of use of selected tools. Subjects which have been covered include food composition tables on the Web, water quality data on CDROM, spectroscopy charts, and plant taxonomy resources.
