Reception Honoring Jill Rosenshield
The Department will close early at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 16; our regular hours will resume on Friday, July 17.
We hope you will be able to join us on July 16, 3:00-5:00 p.m., in Memorial Library Commons (460 Memorial Library) at a reception to honor Jill Rosenshield, Associate Curator of Special Collections, on the occasion of her retirement from the UW-Madison Libraries. Jill began her 47 years of service to the Libraries as a Slavic language cataloger; she moved to serials cataloging after a few years, then again to cataloging, then to the Rare Books Department (now the Department of Special Collections), where she has devoted more than 30 years to collections, cataloging, reference, teaching, and exhibits.
