Stacey Greenwell, associate dean for Academic Affairs and Research, will be on sabbatical leave for the next six months to complete work on the second edition of “Academic Librarianship,” co-authored with G. Edward Evans. This is one of two texts frequently used for academic libraries’ graduate program courses in library and information science. The book is essentially one about higher education and how the academic library supports the mission of a college or university through its staffing, services, collections, and facilities. Given its practical focus, the second edition will also serve as a handbook for new academic librarians.
During Greenwell’s sabbatical through December 31, her responsibilities will be divided between Shawn Livingston, director of the William T. Young Library (branch libraries and international programs) and Jen Bartlett, head of Reference Services (assessment and information literacy).
