Jean Wellington at lectern with photos of Jacquie Riley

On Tuesday, April 23, UCL librarians and UC Classics faculty and staff gathered to commemorate the life and work of Jacquie Riley. Jacquie was the Head of the John M. Burnam Classics Library between 2003 and 2015. She majored in Classics at UC in 1971-72 and started her first job in the Library in 1973-74. After earning a library degree in 1976, Jacquie worked several years in a public library before returning to the UCL. Among her many contributions as the Head of the Classics Library was the overseeing of the moving of the reference collection, the main desk, and the graduate room from the third floor of Blegen to their present location in 2010.
