University Librarian Search - Open Forums for Faculty

September 13, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

We recently sent the search announcement for the next University Librarian. As a part of the stakeholder engagement process, we are holding two open forums for faculty. To balance enrollment, we are roughly dividing the fora by discipline. However, you are welcome to attend either session–the more important goal is to get your input.  

Please email Kristine Lee Wilby at if you wish to have this forum added to your bCal and if you have any questions.

For the forum, we have provided a set of questions that will be facilitated by members of the search advisory committee. 

We also encourage you all to submit your input and nominations via the short online survey. For more information on the UL search, please visit the UL search website

Thank you very much for your engagement with this important search. Fiat lux!
