Barb Richards Retires
The Department of Special Collections and the UW-Madison Libraries honored Barb Richards on April 23 on the occasion of her retirement. In her 35 years in the Department, Barb helped Special Collections grow from its original location on the fourth floor of Memorial Library to its current home on the top two floors of Memorial Library. Her role in managing our renowned collection of Little Magazines is worthy of special note. Many current and former library staff, students, and Friends of the UW-Madison joined in extending to Barb best wishes.
