PCC Colleagues: It is with great enthusiasm that I post with permission Maureen Landry's announcement below. Please join me in congratulating Les in this achievement and in congratulating CONSER in its ability to attract such a talented and dedicated professional to serve in the position of Coordinator! John *************************** I am very pleased to announce Leslie Hawkins' appointment to the CONSER Coordinator position, in the Serial Record Division. Les as the current CONSER specialist has a strong command of the entire CONSER program. His work is well regarded by the former CONSER Coordinator, the larger CONSER world, and LC staff. Les has been involved in serials cataloging in various capacities for about 20 years with increasing levels of responsibility. For the past several years as a senior ISDS cataloger in NSDP, and now as CONSER specialist he has focused on e-serials. As e-serials have become an increasingly significant part of serials cataloging, his skills in this area have served the division and the larger serials world in immeasurable ways. He is very well respected for his strength in this area. Most recently Les completed an impressive revision to the CONSER Cataloging Manual module on e-serials. Les has played a strong leadership role and has done outstanding work in SCCTP- the well regarded serials training program of CONSER. He was a co-author of the SCCTP module on e-serials and has taught this class to national and international audiences to great acclaim. The e-serials course is one of the most popular SCCTP courses in large part due to his efforts. Please join me in congratulating and welcoming Les to his new position within Serial record.
