The support staff of the Library sponsored two well-attended and informative workshops this past spring. At one workshop Kathleen Kopcik of the Counseling Center spoke on dealing with difficult people. At the second, Shirley Adams, Ph.D., dean of Dexter Hanley College, and Tom Smith, also of the Counseling Center, addressed the issue of sexual harassment; Rosemary Sylvester of Affirmative Action was on hand to answer questions. Both sessions provided staff members with insights into improving problem behavior in the workplace. Bonnie Strohl facilitated a round table discussion on fundraising for academic libraries at the Fund Fare workshop sponsored by Library Administration & Management Association Fund Raising & Financial Development Section at the American Library Association in Miami, Ha.
