Congratulations! Jeannette Ward retires after 24 years at UCF Libraries

Posted on: Jul 25, 2008 @ 3:20:08 pm

The UCF Libraries announces the retirement of Jeannette Sommer Ward, July 31, 2008.
Jeannette Ward has been working in libraries since 1975. She received her MLS degree from Rutgers University and took her first professional library position as head of the Serials Department at the Rider College library in Lawrenceville, NJ. One of the unique facets of her very full and productive career is the fact that she has been the driving force in not one, not two, but three complete library management system conversions, beginning at Rider College. Ward made her way to the University of Central Florida (UCF) Library in 1984 as the Technical Services Librarian. At UCF she has also served as Head of Serials, Head of Acquisitions and Collection Management, and retires as Associate Director for Technical Services.
Ward has been an active member and leader of several professional organizations at the national, state, and local levels. She is a recipient of UCF's Excellence in Librarianship award, and, upon retirement, a recipient the UCF Libraries Lifetime Service award.
Good Luck, Jeannette!
