It is that time again to bid farewell to a long-time VALL member who is retiring; welcome a new member into our midst; and send good wishes to those who have moved into new positions. Please see below on updates from VALL institutions.
On behalf of the Virginia State Law Library, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the newest member of our staff, David Knight.
David joined the law library staff in late October, filling the vacancy created when Ben Almoite left to become the manager of the Henrico Municipal Government & Law Library.
David is no stranger to most of you -- he comes to our library from the Norfolk Law Library, where he worked for over eight years, providing service to attorneys, local court staff and the general public. Before his transition to law librarianship, he worked for the Newport News Public Library System for sevenyears, earning his M.S.L.I.S. from Catholic University of America in 2004 (while working full time).
Prior to working in libraries, David managed an independent music store. While at home, he listens to and reads about music, watches the three major sports, and spends time with his wife, Maggie, an instructional technology coach, at their home in Williamsburg.
David will be spending much of his time at the reference desk; his new position also means he is responsible for maintaining the serials in our online library system (journals and loose-leaf services), managing the library’s book binding needs and document delivery services accounting, and assisting Terry with cataloging.
Michelle has a BA in English from Virginia Commonwealth University and a JD from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan. Prior to coming to C&B she has been running her own business providing legal practice project management and support services. She was also faculty at VCU teaching paralegal studies and was program director of legal studies (and adjunct faculty) at Bryant & Stratton.
