Joan Barnes, (402) 472-6987,
Jaci Groves, Architecture Library operations supervisor and Maggie Van Diest, senior accounting associate, University Libraries, are retiring in December with a joint retirement reception. Remarks will be given at 2:30 pm.

In 1988, Jaci Groves started her career at UNL in the Circulation Department of the University Libraries. In 2005, she started her present position in the Architecture Library. Since 1981, Groves has also been a volunteer with the Athletic Department Event Staff and is a member of the rope crew at football games. According to Groves, the highlight of her employment at UNL has been working with students. She will miss them, but plans to continue to volunteer and travel in retirement.

Maggie Van Diest began her 47-year UNL career in the Libraries’ Processing Department. She started before the advent of computer technology and remembers using a manual typewriter to create cards for the card catalog. In 1980, she moved into a position in the Dean’s Office. Van Diest will miss all the connections and friends she had made at UNL over the years. Her plans for retirement include family gatherings and travel.

The reception is free and open to the campus community.
