       Leroy V. Good Library in 1993. A few short years later she was promoted to Principal Library
       Clerk (95). Jan was responsible for helping library patrons at the Circulation Desk at the
       Brighton Campus including check-out, check-in, filing, material retrieval, fine collection, and
       every day customer services. This year the Leroy Good Library was chosen as the Rochester
       region’s academic library of the year. This award acknowledged the hard work of the Library
       staff at MCC. Jan was a member of the MCC Library team being recognized. Her contributions

       online learning. He was the College’s first Instructional Designer. He was one of the first multi-
       media designers within SUNY. He was a leader when MCC implemented CourseSpace in 2001
       for web-enhancing face-to-face classes. Randy was involved in developing the ‘train-the-
       trainer” courses which were adopted SUNY wide – and which he taught at the SUNY
       Professional Training Center in Syracuse, NY. In 2006, he worked with the SUNY Learning
       Network to transition from Lotus Notes to Angel. Randy developed training for all online
       faculty for Angel courseware and also developed training for converting existing SLN courses to
       the new platform. Randy is enjoying his retirement. He is taking online classes and doing
       research in the area of military history, especially World War Two cryptology.

       and continued in this title until 2009 when her title was changed to Liaison and Metrics
       Librarian and continued until she retired this summer. Ellen was responsible for the
       coordination of library liaison activities, connecting the libraries with the teaching and learning
       process as well as with other College departments such as the Counseling and Advising Center,
       Academic Support Services, and Curriculum and Program Development. She also supported
       library statistical and metrics reporting for external and internal constituencies through data
       collection and reporting. In 1991 Ellen was selected as a recipient of the SUNY Chancellor’s
       Award for Excellence in Librarianship for the year 1990-91 – an award bestowed upon
       University professional librarians who have demonstrated extraordinary professional
       achievement in the field of librarianship. She served on the Faculty Association since 1998 and
       was Legislative Committee Chair when she retired. Ellen was an active member of Good
       Shepard Church in Henrietta and continues to volunteer her time to the Church.
