Gale Etschmaier's Message

It’s critical to align the work and goals of the library with that of the campus, and I am looking for opportunities to collaborate in order to develop that shared mission. The library can play a bridge role by bringing people together in a unique way, blending academics, student services and business services. I’m really looking forward to integrating the library across campus.
