UFV Library and Information Technology Program reunion
By Christina Neigel

For 33 years, the Library and Information Technology program at UFV has been in operation.  In November and in partnership with UFV’s Alumni Relations, the Library and Information Technology Department  held a reception to celebrate the hard work and dedication of students, faculty, alumni, practicum and site visit hosts, guest speakers and advisory committee participants.  Guests enjoyed moving speeches, edible delicacies, and live music while reconnecting with colleagues and friends.   Over one thousand dollars was raised to support the Pat Sifton Leadership Endowment which supports program students who demonstrate outstanding contributions to the community.

Despite the many changes the program and the field experience, the fantastic contributions of our graduates would not be possible without the commitment of our professional community.  For this reason, UFV’s Library and Information Technology faculty and staff look forward to planning the next celebration!

Christina Neigel is Associate Professor at UFV, Library and Information Department.
