Comings and Goings

March 12, 2018

Joe ParsioJoe Parsio, our Head of Access Services, has decided to retire. We will greatly miss his contributions to Biddle and Penn Law


Joe came to Penn about 33 years ago and worked in the Biomedical Library and Van pelt before joining Biddle as our Assistant Head of Stacks.  After receiving his master’s degree in library science, he became our Head of Access Services in 2004.  Since then he has been responsible for a great deal of our successful services.   In charge of our circulation desk, he and his staff are a key part of our interaction with students.  He also oversees our very successful and vital Faculty Document Delivery Service.


Joe will be here through the end of the semester.  His last day with us will be May 18, and we will plan a time to celebrate his time with us and to wish him good luck in the next phase of his life.  We’ll keep you posted on that celebration, but meanwhile, please feel free to stop by and thank him for all he has done for us.
