support MHCC librarians

Last week, all three full time faculty librarians at Mt Hood Community College–Teresa Hazen, Julia Longbrake and Anna Johnson–were given layoff notices.

This news came as a shock to the library and the campus, where faculty, students, and staff continue to voice clear support for our faculty librarians and their critical roles on this campus.

Concerned members of the library community are encouraged to contact MHCC’s library director Jeff Ring at jeff.ring@mhcc.edu.

More information can be found on this website, which currently features a story about these layoff notices: http://www.be-informed.net/?p=539
