As Campus Library Dean, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library (NPML). I am writing this message just a few weeks into my new position here at NPML. During my brief time in this role, I have had the opportunity to learn more about NPML’s engagement with the community both on and off campus and I am incredibly excited to continue that tradition. With that in mind, opportunities for partnership will abound through the long-awaited completion of phase one of the library’s first floor renovation, which will include new group study rooms, a reimagined Student Technology Center, and a new gallery space, among other changes. And there will be more to come!
Speaking of the renovation, I am incredibly excited to partner with you, our community, for programming in our new space. Whether you would like to work with the library to bring in guest lectures, schedule performances, plan exhibitions, or have ideas for other gatherings, we welcome the opportunity to work with you to bring our shared spaces to life. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with your ideas!
I would also like to thank Associate Dean (and previous interim Campus Library Dean), Kaya Van Beynen, for her service, her goodwill, and for her hard work bringing me up to speed so I am best prepared to support the library and its users.
I look forward to future conversations with all of you and learning more about your needs and how the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library can best support your educational and professional goals. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
