LTS Fall 2018 5x10s: Reaching out to first year students

This year LTS offered several 5x10 sessions to First Year Students as part of the 5x10 series sponsored by the Student Affairs Office of First Year Experience. The goal of these sessions was to introduce students to topics broadly associated with LTS services.

Students got hands on with Special Collections, learned about doing undergraduate research at Lehigh, and tested their knowledge about Asa Packer in the first ever library-style escape room, Linderman Lockdown!

In memoriam: Siddarth “Sid” Panicker

Siddarth “Sid” Panicker, former LTS help desk student consultant and Library circulation desk supervisor (2015-2017), died unexpectedly this fall at the age of 27. Sid completed his master’s degree in industrial and systems engineering in 2017, and on graduation he assumed a position at Faurecia, an automotive engineering company in Indiana.

Library and Technology Services remembers Sid fondly as a service-minded, professional colleague and a kind and generous individual. We offer our condolences to his friends and family.
