Yesterday we learned that the dates for the on-campus visits of the two finalists for the Associate Dean of Library Services have been set. The primary visit dates for the two will be Tuesday, May 16th and Tuesday, May 23rd. Each finalist will fly into Springfield on the respective Monday before, and fly back out on Wednesday morning. In next week’s Library Notes we’ll provide the names of the two finalists, links to their resumes, and the schedules for their visits. At this point, we are planning Monday evening dinner meetings involving the finalists and those members of the search committee who are available. Available unit heads will have an off-campus lunch with each finalist on Tuesday. If this search is successful, we plan to have our new Associate Dean start in early August.
