  • Goodbye Carol….you will be missed.

  • Saying Goodbye… and Hello

    On behalf of myself, the faculty and staff of the library, I want to express my gratitude to Dean Carol Hixson for her excellent leadership these past five plus years. Carol is fond of saying that Poynter Library is “not your Grandmother’s library.” Under her direction, the staff have moved the library into the 21st century, doing so with vision, collaboration, and lots of hard work. In her last blog entry as Dean, she has highlighted several of the successful accomplishments. Read the full article. Let's go to the blog and welcome Deb Henry as the Interim Dean of Library!
