The University of Kansas Libraries
A Message from the Dean
As dean of KU Libraries, I see firsthand the pride and prestige associated with this great university, due in large part to the unparalleled support of its advocates. Libraries are the heart of a university, and patrons and friends are the heart of a library. Since I joined the KU Libraries family, I have been delighted to see a growing interest in our endeavors.
I strongly believe there is a natural and mutually beneficial relationship between a library and its supporters, and I am pleased to tell you that one of my strategic priorities is to better engage our extended library family. I invite you to attend our events, sign up to receive a copy of Bibliophile and learn more about what’s new at the libraries.
I’m grateful for you interest and involvement. I look forward to working with you as we build an even stronger reputation for excellence in scholarship, teaching, and service at our institution.
