Library Staff News

a. Mary Engle Moves to Part-Time

The CDL regrets to report that Shared Content Analyst Mary Engle has relocated to southern California.  Hired by the Division of Library Automation (DLA) in 1979, Mary filled a number of roles in her UC career.  She led the documentation group, staffed the Computer Files Committee, served as editor and photographer for the DLA Bulletin, and worked on special project for Director Lynch.  She was an active contributor to the NISO Z39.80 standard on bibliographic downloading formats.

It is difficult to imagine the CDL without Mary who was well known for her negotiating skills for systemwide databases at DLA long before there was a CDL or any other library consortium.  Although the CDL expects to begin a recruitment to fill her position permanently, we are fortunate that Mary is continuing to work for the CDL from a distance, part-time, with occasional travel to Oakland.  She will continue to work with vendors, participate in conference calls, and communicate with bibliographers.  Mary can still be reached by email ( and voicemail at CDL.  If you need to speak directly and immediately to her, please call the CDL offices at 510.987.0425 to be referred.
