University of Arizona Begins Search for New Dean of University Libraries

From The Arizona Daily Wildcat:

Last week, a 20-person search committee for the position of dean of university libraries was chosen, according to Thomas Miller, search committee chair and associate provost.

The new dean will be picked and in place before current Dean Carla Stoffle steps down, which means there will be no interim dean.

Approximately 10-15 Skype interviews are expected to be conducted and the finalists will have a public forum by mid-April.


After she steps down, Stoffle said she will take a sabbatical so she can start writing a book. She will return to the UA as a professor in the School of Information Resources and Library Science for the fall 2014 semester.
