WILMA BASS has traded books for serials, having left her position as Head, Monographs, at the University of Maryland’s Health Sciences and Human Services Library for a new position as Head of the Unit III Cataloging Section at the National Library of Medicine. Of the August 2007 move Wilma writes, “I’ve been a medical cataloger for more than twenty years, so finally making my way to NLM is sort of the culmination of my career.” This column congratulates Wilma on her move, and wishes the readership to know she may now be reached at:

Congratulations are also in order for MELISSA BECK, now the Senior Cataloging Librarian for UCLA Law School. Formerly the Serials and E-resources Cataloger at UCLA, Melissa began her new job January 2, 2008. She writes, “I’m having a great time, being in the happy position of being able to continue cataloging in my area of expertise (and passion—I am a serials geek through and through!), but also having the opportunity to learn and grow in areas completely new to me. I am also very fortunate to be working with one of the recognized experts in legal materials cataloging, Rhonda Lawrence.” Melissa is listed at:

Capitalizing on her years of experience with serials as a paraprofessional at South Florida, Jessica now serves as Radford’s Serials & Electronic Resources Librarian for Radford University.
