Congratulations Mike and welcome Gail!


After 13 years with LLMC, Mike Twu, LLMC’s Business Manager, has accepted a position with the University of Minnesota.  As many of you know, Mike has played an instrumental role with our consortium, overseeing production in Kaneohe and then successfully transitioning the organization (and his beautiful family) to Eagan.  We wish Mike continued success and happiness in the future!


We welcome Gail Upton as Business Administrator to the LLMC team.


Born and raised in the Midwest, Gail has lived in a few different areas of the U.S., going to high school in Maryland, college at the University of Wisconsin, and library school at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Her work experience includes a variety of different libraries—Public, University, and Special, in the Public Service area.  After a multi-year hiatus to serve as a Patient Advocate for ill relatives, she is very happy to reconnect to libraries in an organization with such a great purpose.  Gail said, “Preserving documents, and making them available for use, is something I can support with pride.”


In her spare time, Gail enjoys theater, both as part of the audience, and as a performer.  She also serves as an election judge for her home county, and (cliché) really enjoys reading :)
