Kansas State University: “Dean Lori Goetsch Carries Legacy of Female Leadership in K-State’s Libraries”
From The Collegian:
Since , there have been 16 other heads, directors or deans of the K-State Libraries, the most recent of which is Dean Lori Goetsch.
“I didn’t start out in libraries thinking I would be a dean of libraries,” Goetsch said. “I started out because I really liked the service side of libraries.”
Goetsch began her career as a service librarian working at a reference desk, much like Pearce, who worked as an assistant librarian for two years before being appointed head librarian.
Goetsch tried out some positions where she held more responsibility and really enjoyed the administrative side of the work. In 2004, she became dean of libraries at K-State.
