David Ray and Brian Clinger
Our Employees of the Quarter for the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2001
David Ray, circulation supervisor, oversees the intake of materials returned from patrons and ensures their quick return to circulation within the Talking Book Program. During the past several months, Ray volunteered to assist the Circulation Unit in other areas while the program director worked to fill several vacancies. Ray performed the duties of his own job, as well as interim manager and outbound circulation supervisor. He also assisted the Machine Lending Unit. He remained flexible during this critical time period, performing all of these duties exceptionally and efficiently. His outstanding dedication ensured that patrons of the Talking Book Program continued to receive the high level of customer service the program is known for.
Facilities Manager Brian Clinger plays an important role in the level of customer service provided by the State & Local Records Management Division. He supports all building system services at the State Records Center. His responsibilities include evaluating and responding to maintenance requests, maintaining the division's truck and delivery vans, and looking out for the safety of staff who perform high risk job activities. Clinger performs all of these duties exceptionally. His proactive approach to preventing environmental or security problems saves the division money as well as ensures the safety of the records in storage at the facility. The State Library has reduced accidents by 30% over last year, and Clinger's efforts contributed to this dramatic improvement.
