Garner Named Social Sciences Librarian in College Library

The College Library recently named Diane Garner as librarian for the social sciences. She will be responsible for overseeing and managing various College Library programs located in Lamont, Littauer, and Pusey libraries, including government documents, maps, and environmental resources.

The new librarian will also represent the College Library in the planning for the Knafel Center.

In addition, Garner will direct and develop much-awaited improvements on resources, services, and access to numeric data.

Garner came to work at the College Library in 1991.

First National Child Democracy Conference Takes Place

The first national conference on the child and American democracy was held last week.

The conference was the brainchild of Susan Linn, instructor in psychiatry and associate director of the Media Center of the Harvard-affiliated Judge Baker Children's Center in Boston. The conference will lay a course for new studies that address what is an "alarming lack of awareness by youngsters of basic elements of the very democracy they are growing up in."

Funded by a Judge Baker Children's Center grant from the A.L. Mailman Family Foundation, the Center plans to use media to foster the health and well-being of children.

Alvin F. Poussaint, clinical professor of psychiatry at the Medical School and director of the Judge Baker Media Center, adds that, "political and social attitudes begin to form in childhood. . . . [This] is also the time to begin . . . teaching our young people how to engage in a democracy."
