Amy Filiatreau Named University Librarian

The following message comes from the Office of the Provost:

Dear Colleagues,

University Librarian Amy Filiatreau

University Librarian Amy Filiatreau

On behalf of the search committee for the University Librarian, we are excited to announce that Amy Filiatreau will start in this role on August 25.

Amy has been working professionally in libraries and archives since 2001. She’s served as the library director at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida since 2013, and in that role, she originally developed and now oversees Lynn’s Digital Press, textbook program, institutional repository, Creative Services department, and OER projects, in addition to all the other strategic operations of the library. Before that, she served as the library director at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has a bachelor’s in anthropology and archaeology from the University of Chicago, an MLIS from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MBA in marketing from Lynn University. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, devouring the news, baking bread, and caring for her special-needs dog.

Thanks to everyone who joined the committee and engaged in the search process, particularly the open forums and feedback form, and thanks again to Carolyn Parsons for her many years of service to her alma mater and her recent leaders as interim university librarian.

We look forward to welcoming Amy to campus this fall semester!

Thank you,
