After 19 years of service at SUL, Lili Yang of the Data Control Unit will be retiring at the end of this week. Her last day at work will be June 9.
Lili started her career at the Libraries as an hourly worker in Government Documents, then moved to a library specialist position in Access Services in 1999, where she worked mainly at SAL (the Stanford Auxiliary Library). After a little over a year in Access Services, Lili found her “home” in the Catalog Department (the previous incarnation of what is now known as the Metadata Department). From 2001 to 2008, Lili worked in the Materials Control Unit, handling a variety of tasks, including the processing of gifts, bulk collections, microforms, Stanford dissertations, and patron’s requests for in-process materials. Lili became a member of the Data Control Unit in 2009, when Materials Control was merged into Data Control as part of a reorganization of the Metadata Department. For the past eight years, Lili has been a data control specialist, devoting her time to keeping our online catalog accurate and up-to-date.
