Welcome to the Spring 2016 issue of Illuminations: A Newsletter for New Faculty.

This issue features two articles from faculty: Sarah Norris (Scholarly Communications Librarian) and Peggy Nuhn (Regional Campus Librarian).

We also have three pieces in our Special Features section: an interview with Dr. Tom Cavanagh, Associate Vice President of Distributed Learning, a primer on scholarly communications by John Venecek, Lee Dotson, and Andrew Todd, and an announcement about the American Library Association conference being held in Orlando this year.

Also included is an update on the 21st Century Library project.

This is my first issue as editor, and I enjoyed getting to know the campus and our new faculty even better. If you are a new faculty member, or know of one who would be worth featuring, please let us know. In the meantime, I want to thank those who have contributed to the first six issues and helped us get this project off the ground!
