Library Announcements – 5/10/21

Welcome, Jim!

We are happy to announce that Jim Tolleson will be joining us as a new Accountant in our Business Office.  His primary focus will be on managing the TS&CM budget in Alma and Peoplesoft as well as entering the TS&CM invoices in Buyways.  Over time, Jim will also learn the other functions of our business office in order to serve as a back-up for Karen.  For the last twenty years, he has worked as an Accountant/Fiscal Analyst II at SC Endeavors in Greenville, so he is quite familiar with the state’s fund accounting systems and will be a great asset to our team.

Jim’s start date will be Wednesday, May 12, 2021.  Please join me in welcoming Jim to the Clemson Libraries’ family.
