What do they do?—Paulette Thompson

Paulette Thompson
PeriodicalsBindery Supervisor

As the PeriodicalsBindery Supervisor, I am responsible for overseeing the entire operation of the Periodicals Department. This involves ordering new journals, both print and electronic, paying invoices, and maintaining holdings of our journals in order to provide accurate information to our patrons. I update coverage of electronic journals, which includes adding and removing titles that appear on the full-text journal finder page as necessary, and updating links in our catalog records.

I also work very closely with ProQuest, the Circulation Department Supervisor, and our students in preparation of their dissertations and theses for binding and publication.

I have worked in the Regent University Library for 26 years in multiple positions. I have been the PeriodicalsBindery Supervisor since 1995. I feel that God calls us to be the best that we can wherever He places us in life.

To me, the highest calling that I have in life is to be a mother of one son and two beautiful grandchildren. This privilege has brought immeasurable joy to my life. Quiet time with the Lord, working with my flowers, and cooking fun things are also pleasures in my life.
