I am happy to introduce you all to Amie Freeman who will take on the role of library liaison to the Anthropology department in the spring. I am sad to give up this role but my other roles in the library are demanding more of my time. Amie is a USC grad and has worked in the library for many years and recently was appointed to a faculty position. She will be an excellent resource for the Anthropology faculty and I know you will enjoy working with her when she returns from maternity leave in the spring semester. In the meantime, please continue to contact me with anything library-related.
I've included a few items of interest below. Please note the link to Ethnographic Video Online where you will find streaming video of classic and some more contemporary ethnographic films. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
