Selma Jaskowski, associate director for Technology Services and Resource Management, has retired from the University of Central Florida (UCF) Libraries after 25 years of service. Arriving at the library in 1994, Jaskowski embarked on a mission to provide the best technology services for students and staff. It began with the rewiring of the entire building, which was the first structure built on the UCF campus, to support network-connected PCs for all staff and students. Jaskowski moved on to increase her staff of 1 to 12 over the next several years creating an autonomous IT team for the libraries that installed and managed multiple servers, switches, and wiring. Through the efforts of Jaskowski and her team, the building was the first on campus to have wireless connectivity. Technology lending soon followed along with the establishment of the LibTech desk, a central location to borrow equipment and for tech help. Jaskowski oversaw the creation of the libraries’ web presence, multiple custom designed databases for staff operational use, the implementation of network printing, and digital signage.
