[Libs-Or] Job opening at MHCC

Alan Cordle, PCC Library acordle at pcc.edu

What guarantee can you offer that this position will be secure in
light of the fact that you recently dismissed the sole three tenured
faculty librarians? Is this position designed to cover the duties of
all three fired women? Like many of my local and national colleagues,
I suspect their firings were retaliation for calling administration on
the illegal posting of the entire Mt. Hood faculty's library IDs.
