“These promotions provide an opportunity for the University to recognize the long-standing academic and research contributions of our librarian professionals,” said David Seaman, Dean of Libraries and University Librarian. 

Recommendations for promotion are brought forward to the Dean of the Libraries by the Libraries’ Promotion Committee. They are then reviewed and approved by the Provost.
