The Director is responsible for all library operations, including budgeting, expenditures, hiring and supervision of all library staff, collection development, research and reference services, both strategic long-term and short-term planning, initiating and monitoring all library programs and services, and technology applications. The Director reports to the Dean and also works closely with the Deputy Dean on most matters.
