All: As you can see from the announcement below, Franklin College’s young and capable Jared Crocker is leaving for new adventures elsewhere. I need to make a public thank you to Jared for his many hours helping me with requests for my research and books. Jared: SALUD and Safe adventures, Colleague Jared.
Dear Franklin College Community–
I am sorry to inform you that Jared Crocker will shortly be leaving us for a new adventure. Jared has worked with the library since 2017 and has been an invaluable member of the library team. As Archives Assistant, his contributions to the library include the creation of an Archives resource guide, many exhibits featuring hidden gems of our special collections, responding to numerous email and phone enquiries, and support of events during Homecoming and Alumni Weekend. Many of you, of course, have depended heavily on Jared, in his role as Interlibrary Loan Assistant, to obtain the general and esoteric material that you needed. Jared was also the creator of the Coronavirus resource guide that kept many people up to date and informed during the pandemic. We will miss Jared’s quiet competence and his collaborative spirit.
