U of Tulsa announces next step in Dean of Libraries search

I was surprised to see this story pop up on my news feed. But find it wonderfully interesting that a student paper ran such a story concerning the top-dog position at the library.

Library dean candidates announced

The University of Tulsa administration recently announced the three final candidates for the position of R.M. and Ida McFarlin Dean of the Library in an e-mail press release to the campus community.

Forums have already been held with Sean Latham and Kurt Heinzelman, the first two candidates.

According to the press release, the final forum will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 17 in the McFarlin Library Faculty Study for candidate Adrian Alexander.

For those who have missed the forums, more information on each of the candidates including their curriculum vitas, letter of applications and vision statements can be found on Vista WebCT by clicking on “Vista Courses.”

I'm Adrian Alexander, the candidate who ended up with this job. I've been at TU for almost five weeks now. It was a pleasant surprise to me as well, last fall, when The Collegian requested my picture for this story. In the interest of full disclosure, the student paper has not yet done any follow up stories since I arrived, though.
