Dean’s Doings

by Barbara I. Dewey, dean, University Libraries and Scholarly Communications

It’s a new year and I am trying a different kind of column highlighting selected activities I’m involved in as they happen. Nicki Hendrix and I just returned from a brief trip to Naples, Florida, where we visited with several alumni donors. We also attended the Naples Penn State Alumni Chapter where I gave a talk about the Libraries.

To read my comments given at the talk, open a browser to:

I focused on what students are doing in the library in their own words, highlights of Special Collections, and major initiatives including OER, the Campaign, our work supplying Penn State collections to the Commonwealth, and the 100 Years of the Pulitzer Exhibition. The chapter meeting was attended by about 40 Penn State alums.
