Carol LaRussa retiring

June 18th, 2014 by

Carol LaRussa, the long-time librarian for geology and civil and environmental engineering, is retiring this June. We will miss her expertise, collegiality and deep institutional knowledge, but wish her the best in this new chapter!

For the time being, Carol’s subject areas will be split between the current PSE librarians:

  • The librarian for geology, meteorology and oceanography is Phoebe Ayers. Contact her at psayers@ucdavis.edu, or 752-9948.
  • The librarian for civil and environmental engineering, hydrology, and mining and petroleum engineering is Cory Craig. Contact her at cjcraig@ucdavis.edu or 752-0347.

If you have a reference question, please contact pse@lib.ucdavis.edu and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

We are open from 8:00am-8:00pm M-T, 8:00am-6:00pm F, and 1:00-5:00pm on Sunday during the summer. Our reference hours are 1:00-5:00pm M-F, or you can make an appointment to meet with a librarian. Please contact us with any questions!
