On January 13, 2023, after more than 40 years at the Dalhousie University Libraries, Andrew Finch will begin his retirement. Due to vacation, his last day of work will be Friday, November 25.
Andrew’s career at the Libraries started as a student employee in September 1979. On December 16, 1982, he accepted the position of Evening Circulation Supervisor in the Circulation Department of the Killam Library. After four years in the evening position Andrew accepted a promotion, in May of 1986, to the Reserve Library Assistant position in the MacDonald Science Library, Circulation Department.
In August 1989, the Science Library Circulation merged with the Killam Circulation Department and Andrew’s duties evolved into Circulation Database Assistant. By the early 1990s, Andrew was working in Circulation as well as Technical Services where he provided collections support and worked with Government documents. In 1997, Andrew, along with other members of the access services and technical services teams, played an important role in the very successful integration of the Maritime School of Social Work Collection. This integration took a phenomenal effort and was extremely well done.
Andrew is finishing up a long career in the Libraries as a full-time Library Assistant in the Access Services Department of the Killam Library. Please join us in wishing him all the best as he begins this new chapter of his life.
