New Editor

PEN-e will be getting a new editor, Taryn Ruciniski, who will be taking over immediately.  Taryn is taking on my position as Environmental Librarian for Pace Law School while I move on the support the Health Law program.  It has been fun starting this blog and keeping everyone informed.  PEN-e has won awards and gone from zero to over 30,000 hits from all over the world in two years.  PEN-e is linked to by a number of posters and has a great following.

Taryn is Pace Law Library's newest reference librarian.  She graduated cum laude with her B.A. in history from The College of New Jersey in 1999, cum laude from Pace with her J.D. and certificate in environmental law in 2010, and cum laude with her M.L.I.S. from St.  John’s University Division of Library and Information Science in 2012.  During law school she was the editor in chief for the Pace Environmental Law Review and a semi-finalist for the Pace Moot Court Competition.  Moreover, as a law student she also interned with Magistrate Judge Lisa Margaret Smith, S.D.N.Y., the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, and the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic.  Prior to attending law school, she worked as a state investigator with New Jersey Attorney General’s Office
I am confident that Taryn will not only carry on but do an even better job of keeping everyone connected to important environmental resources.  Taryn will, more than likely, also have some great new ideas to enhance PEN-e, so keep posted.

See ya'
