The Corcoran Library will be closed from 3pm on Tuesday, July 31 through Friday, August 3 for off-site staff training. We will be implementing a new software system for our collection, and we are very excited about its possibilities. We anticipate our new system will be easier to use by researchers, provide useful options like the ability to send call numbers to your phone, and offer significant cost savings to the institution! Thank you for your patience while we make this switch.

As president, Jacqueline is the chief executive and spokesperson for the association. She is responsible for substantive and administrative decisions regarding the association’s plans and activities.
