After thirty-eight years of hard work and dedication, Pam has decided to retire. Please join us in the library on Thursday, January 25th from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. to wish Pam all the best as she begins this new chapter in her life.
Something about Pam Temple -- almost every morning, she would greet each person with a cheerful good morning or hello; even though, she is a self-described night owl. Find out more about Pam from her Not So Frequently Asked Questions blog post.
Pam is the library's Coordinator for Technical Services, which puts her in charge of acquisitions, cataloging, and processing new materials. Besides being in charge of all the magic that happens in the back of the library, she's also been known to help at the Public Services desk as well as the campus advisor for copyright questions.
In her contribution to the Stars at KLIC blog series, Pam wrote this about herself:
I want to KNOW things, how something gets made, how something works, why people are the way they are, how to survive a natural disaster, etc., etc. Many times as a reference librarian, I would help a student find some information they needed for a speech, a paper, whatever. They would leave, but I'd still be researching because, now, I wanted to know.

Besides being the coordinator for technical services, Pam served briefly as interim library dean during the summer of 2012.
Thank you, Pam Temple, for your dedication and work at Chattanooga State and in the library! We will miss you!
