A Message from the Dean of Libraries
We’ve launched this newsletter to create an exchange with you. As the University enters into a new era of research and scholarship, the Libraries must evolve in the ways we provide leadership and support to the academic community within a complex environment of print and digital resources. We are taking on a bigger role, engaging with the academic community through teaching and leading with innovative educational technologies and we have many exciting developments to share with you.
You will learn about two far-sighted gifts to Special Collections — one gift a collection from an alumnus and the other an endowed collection in memory of an alumnus. Both gifts are important to the Libraries, not only because they are invaluable additions to Special Collections, but also for their value as learning tools in the classroom. We also report on a fascinating online exhibition on the representation of Guatemalan refugees based on the research of a current faculty member.
As you explore what we have to offer, we would love to hear from you! Reach out and share any ideas that will help us increase engagement with our alumni community.
