RE: Short Version of Resolution for Emeritus Status for Associate Professor Elaine K. Pease
DATE: November 4, 2004

Professor Elaine K. Pease, Associate Professor of Librarianship, retired in June 2004, after 27 years of service to Millersville University.

Professor Pease supervised the creation of the library's electronic catalog overseeing the conversion of all records in the library's catalog from the paper-based card file to an electronic database, and serving as bibliographic database manager.

While serving as the supervisor of the Library's Catalog unit, Professor Pease coordinated the change in the Library's classification system from the Dewey Decimal system to the Library of Congress system, directed the unit's activities in support of the migration to Endeavor's Voyager automation system, and provided leadership in the development of an authority control program for Millersville's library catalog.

Professor Pease contributed to continuing scholarship in United States history, material culture, and library science.

Professor Pease served on numerous departmental and University committees, most notably the University Promotion and Tenure, Sabbatical Leave, and University Honors Program Committees, the Faculty Senate, APSCUF Representative Council, and as an adviser to hundreds of undecided students.

Therefore, the Library Department unanimously recommends that Associate Professor Elaine K. Pease be granted the honorary title of Associate Professor of Librarianship Emerita.
