Statement of Achievements

Introduction: The following is a summary of my leadership and achievements as the Dean of University Libraries during the review period, March 2011 to February 2017. The Libraries have undergone tremendous change, perhaps as significant and as rapid a change as any university research library in the country. Through my leadership, we have built a nimble and flexible library system; one that anticipates the needs of the university community, shows it what is possible, and introduces new approaches regarding information, data, and knowledge-building. While these activities reflect my own commitment and dedication, I recognize that my achievements are organizational successes made possible by the Libraries’ faculty and staff and the internal and external partners with whom we work. Without their adoption and sharing in our contemporary vision and strategies, and engaging in the enormous transitions undertaken, I would have very few achievements to report. For their interest, energy, and commitment to growing a dynamic and vibrant library, I am very grateful.
