Duties and Responsibilities

Along with logistical decisions that must be made on a daily basis, my role as Dean of the Oviatt Library requires that I engage in strategic thinking and planning, that I articulate a vision for the Library, that I build consensus among a broad spectrum of staff, and that I develop relationships outside of the Library.

I’ve worked in the trenches of academic libraries, and I appreciate the hard work that our librarians and staff perform.  I know what the challenges are, and I believe that we in the Oviatt Library can meet these challenges.  Academic libraries will be going through major changes in the coming years, and I am looking forward to leading CSUN through these changes.  Thoughtful and visionary strategic planning, along with the ability to partner with other entities on campus and cultivate partners off campus, are crucial facets of my position.
