Gilbert, April (University Library) is Stepping Beyond

“In September 2017, April Gilbert, SJSU Library’s Institutional Repository Coordinator, learned of a Columbia University effort to host a “mapathon”, an event harnessing open-source mapping of Puerto Rico for the benefit of relief agencies on the ground in the wake of Hurricane Maria. According to Alex Gil, the Columbia event’s organizer, FEMA and other agencies are having difficulties locating damaged areas in Puerto Rico due to insufficient mapping. Following the hashtag #prmapathon, April found that West Coast participation in this effort was lacking, so she began promoting it to SJSU Library colleagues as an opportunity for our for our library to collaborate with the campus community and other organizations to aid in the Hurricane Maria recovery effort. Libraries at other colleges have also followed Columbia’s lead holding similar events, including Boston University, Rutgers, University of Miami, University of Alaska – Fairbanks, Trinity College, University of Nebraska at Omaha, and now, thanks to April, San Jose State University Library on Friday, October 13, 2017. The #prmapathon events have been well attended, and have been lauded on PBS NewsHour and in The New York Times. April’s efforts have driven this library event, providing the chance for the SJSU community to join those other institutions making a difference in helping Puerto Rico’s recovery.” — Carole Correa-Morris

Imai, Kane (Desktop Support) is Stepping Beyond

“My daughter was ill and I had to stay home and take care of her for part of the day. However, we had some important training that day. My colleague helped out by arranging for me to telecommute into the training. This was very much appreciated and above the call of his responsibilities.” — Mario Rivas

Spartans Stepping Beyond for the Bursar’s Office

“I am writing to thank you for your assistance this week with helping the Bursar’s Office issue ID cards to our students. We were swamped with students on Monday with very long lines waiting to receive their student ID cards. Fortunately, by Tuesday, we had figured out a system to give students appointments so that we could regulate the lines into more manageable segments, which is continuing into next week. I was overwhelmed with your generosity to just pitch in at a moment’s notice and do what needed to be done to help us out, despite the fact that you had your own responsibilities and jobs to do. It was a true show of spirit and willingness to step in and help out no matter what – a totally Spartan thing to do. It makes me so proud to work with such outstanding colleagues, which is why I love working here. Thank you so much. We could not have done it without you.” — Jennifer Kraskouskas
