Two New Group Study Rooms

Over the summer, two rooms for group study were added to the 2nd floor of the Learning Resource Center.

These rooms, made from portable office materials, are bigger than the permanent rooms, so feel free to take a larger group in there. Sign up for a room at the Research Help desk on the second floor of the Library.

The purpose of all Library study rooms is for group study among current students, and demand has been very strong.  Tutors, please ask your sponsor if they can provide an alternative space for SCC tutoring.

New Librarian!

Welcome Karen Tercho, SCC’s newest librarian.  Karen brings experience as an adjunct librarian at the CRC Library as well as full-time work as solo librarian at Bryan University. We asked Karen to list “Five Things You Don’t Know about Me.”  Now you know!

Karen Tercho

  1. I grew up in Massachusetts and have lived in Montreal (B.A. in cultural anthropology from McGill), Rhode Island (MLIS), and Brooklyn (life lessons). Since then I have sworn off cold winters. Viva California!
  2. I have big interest in the social sciences, especially ethnic and cultural studies, and I enjoy learning about technology, science, history, and baseball.
  3. In my free time I practice and teach yoga and am studying to become a certified Iyengar yoga teacher.
  4. I play the drums and used to play in bands. Being in a band means being in a relationship with multiple creative people, so I’m currently on hiatus.
  5. My travel bug:  India and Italy are my favorites so far, and the U.K. and Cambodia are next on my list.
