Librarian Candidates to Visit College

An email forwarded by Provost Barry Scherr discusses the upcoming search for a new Librarian.

“We are now finalizing the schedules for the on-campus interviews for the four finalists for the Dean of the Libraries and Librarian of the College Search and are interested in your feedback as a member of the Dartmouth community.

“During the days listed below, a candidate will come to Dartmouth to explore the campus and our libraries. Each candidate will also make a presentation to faculty and students, to which you are especially invited to come, listen, and help the Search Committee with your opinions on the finalist. Receptions will be held each Friday afternoon to give you the opportunity to meet and talk with the candidate over hors d’oeuvres as well. We hope to have as much involvement of the Dartmouth community in this process as possible and are eager for your participation.
