We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Kenneth M. and Kenda H. Singer Endowed Science Librarian fund to support a librarian position and programmatic expenditures in the Allan Price Science Commons and Research Library. This generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. Singer makes the UO Libraries stronger by helping us fund a position dedicated to promoting and enhancing the sciences through library teaching and service. Much of the inspiration for the gift came from the donors’ interactions with Annie Zeidman-Karpinski, whom the Singers came to appreciate as an exceptional librarian.
Annie has been with the University of Oregon since 2002 coming from Los Angeles after graduating from UCLA.
