Our People


There are close to 300 staff in our library branches who support, serve and connect with users on a daily basis. While much of the Library’s focus is on delivering excellence to faculty, students and community users, it is also important to provide a strong infrastructure internally, to support our staff as they develop personally and professionally, and to recognize their contributions. Here are some ways in which the Library is making the workplace extraordinary for our staff.
