Dr. Grete Pasch comes to the Sidney Martin Library with a wealth of experience in metadata design, computer systems implementation, digitization projects and higher education. When asked how she sees librarianship in the Caribbean unfolding, she responded, "I have just arrived in the Caribbean and have much to learn, but it’s clear to me that, with most books and journals now available in digital form, librarians everywhere have been "freed" from having to spend all their time caring for huge collections of print items.  Our work has shifted toward providing new and improved services to our users.  In an academic setting, this means leading information literacy efforts, encouraging reading both for study and for fun, providing faculty with updated research tools, and improving our infrastructure to offer updated technology and comfortable spaces for reading and reflection".

The History Makers is a video history of the small details of everyday life and profound events experienced by African-Americans collected by the Library of Congress.  The collection includes 9,000 hours of video interviews with 2,600 African-Americans in more than 35 states.
