update from the executive director
In this month’s issue of the FLVC Library Services Update, I would like to shine a spotlight on some exciting information about FLVC Library Services staff members.
Many of our current staff members have been with FLVC (and its predecessor organizations) for long periods of time. In this issue, we will include a section to celebrate work anniversaries for FLVC staff members. You’ll see below a list of eight of our colleagues who celebrate work anniversaries during April and May. Each of these individuals has my sincere gratitude for all that they do for FLVC Library Services!
We would also like to welcome two new members to the FLVC Library Services team:
Rhianne McCalip joins FLVC as a Help Desk Analyst.
Elisabeth Ball becomes a part of the team as Program Manager for Digital Services and OER.
You’ll find more information about each of them further on in this update.
FLVC has an amazing team of professional staff! If you’d like to know more about the team, please visit our staff list at https://libraries.flvc.org/falsc-staff. We are also looking for team members to join FLVC Library Services. Please see our regularly updated list of career opportunities at https://libraries.flvc.org/careers.

More New FLVC staff
Over the past month, the Library Services division of FLVC has added two new employees. Please make them feel welcome as they begin their work with us!
Rhianne McCalip - Help Desk Analyst
Rhianne McCalip joined FLVC’s statewide Help Desk on April 15th as a Help Desk Analyst. She is a graduate of Emory University with a bachelor’s degree in Cultural Anthropology and is working on her master’s degree in Information at Florida State University. We are excited to have her. Be on the lookout for her as you interact with the Help Desk!

Elisabeth Ball earned a BA in English from Davidson College and an MS in Library Science from UNC-Chapel Hill. She has worked in the state college library setting for twelve years (recently at Florida State College of Jacksonville). Her experience also includes time in medical education conducting grant and project coordination. She is excited to join our DS/OER team to help propel digital and open education content into an era of even greater student success. Elisabeth looks forward to engaging with members; reading and writing are her avocations, so if anyone wants to chat about books, she's willing!
