HONORED DONOR -- At a recent reception honoring Dr. Barbara Shineman (left), SUNY Oswego Director of Libraries Mary Beth Bell presented the emeritus professor of education with a plaque recognizing her generosity in supporting development of Penfield Library's Teaching Resource Center. The center on the library's second floor includes computer stations, book and media collections, and a renovated study corner. Bell and SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley spoke of Shineman's devotion to supporting the library through this and other projects. Shineman, for her part, recalled her days as an Oswego student who valued the library as the heart of the campus learning environment. "Money going to the library is always very well spent," she said.
