In an April 20 Intercom post, Ithaca College announced that beginning July 1, Michelle Millet will be working as the college’s librarian.
For the 2021–22 academic year, the position was held temporarily by Interim College Librarian Karin Wikoff. Millet’s hiring follows the retirement of Lis Chabot, who left the college in May 2021. Chabot held the position of college librarian from August 2003 to May 2021.
Millet was the director of Grasselli Library and Breen Learning Center at John Carroll University (JCU) since 2012. During her time at JCU, Millet increased usage of the library building by 200% and increased usage in print, multimedia and electronic library materials. Millet led board approval of a $25 million library renovation plan at JCU, which will begin construction December 2022. Millet previously held positions within libraries at The University of Texas at San Antonio and Trinity University, the post stated.
“Please stop by the library and introduce yourself to Michelle after she begins her work with us on July 1, 2022,” the post said. “We are all certain that you will enjoy working with her!”
