Reference assistant recognized for her work
Yvonne Hasegawa, chief reference assistant for the University Library, was honored as this year’s Outstanding Staff member for her patience, tirelessness and a “quiet equanimity” even when facing mountains of work.
Nominators described her as “knowledgeable, thorough, and meticulous with her work” and going “beyond the call of duty.” Whether supervising students, working at the Reference Desk, shepherding students through the thesis process, or creating theses manuals, she has been recognized as doing it all extremely well.
A staff member at Cal State L.A. for 40 years, Hasegawa served as a catalyst and played a pivotal role in the success of the e-theses, which went live in the fall of 2011.
“I was overwhelmed and really touched when I heard I won the award,”... more Hasegawa said. “I really enjoy doing what I do, working with graduate students with their theses and seeing them eventually graduate.” back
