Farewell and Best Wishes, Holly Eggleston
Holly Eggleston, CDL’s Electronic Resource Services Manager, has been on leave for the last few months and has decided to resign from her position.
Holly started at CDL in 2009 to lead development of technical standards and policy pertaining to licensed resources, and ensure that the functionality of these resources support the educational and research needs of UC students and faculty.
Additionally, over the years, Holly organized and managed the CDL Resource Liaisons program, comprised of 100+ subject area expert librarians across all ten campuses who serve as key links between the UC system and CDL licensed resource vendors, as well as between CDL and the campuses. She also managed the technical integration of licensed electronic resources into CDL systems and services, including defining and communicating technical requirements, facilitating vendor relationships, and managing ongoing lifecycle management activities from resource evaluation and transition between platforms to resource cancellation. In this work, Holly collaborated closely with the Launch and Lifecycle, Collections, and Resource Wranglers groups at CDL, as well as with the Resource Liaisons, other UC campus contacts and vendor representatives.
Recently, Holly did much of the groundwork on the SILS project, working with local CDL teams and on systemwide committees for acquisitions, electronic resources, and technical services processes and workflows. Her detailed work through the stages leading to go-live were invaluable as we now put procedures to the test in the real world.
Please join all of CDL in wishing Holly well in her new endeavors.
