University Librarian Search Committee Collaboration Opportunity

The following message comes from the Office of the Provost:

Dear Colleagues,

As many of you know, Carolyn Parsons has announced her retirement this summer after many years of service to the University and Simpson Library. I am especially grateful for her efforts over the past year and half to provide steady leadership as the interim University Librarian.

We are now in the midst of a search for our next University Librarian and the search will continue into the summer. The search committee consists of:

  • Victoria Russell (co-chair)
  • Jerry Slezak (co-chair)
  • Claudine Ferrell
  • Phyllis Johnson
  • Angie Kemp
  • Brooks Kuykendall

If you would like to be involved and help as we get to campus visits, please contact Victoria and Jerry. We are enthusiastic about the opportunity ahead and want to demonstrate that to our candidates.

Thanks so much for your consideration.

Tim O’Donnell
