Spring 2019 from the university librarian

May 31, 2019
Posted In: AT Still Library News, AT Still Memorial Library

Summer is in full swing and many students are already on break. This was a busy spring for the library staff. Susan Swogger, MLIS, was appointed the Missouri campus branch manager in Jan. 2019, and I was appointed university library director in May 2019. Summer 2019 will bring some new faces to Kirksville and Mesa as we replace their previous two positions.

I am excited to be the new university library director. I have been at A.T. Still University (ATSU) for almost seven years as the electronic resources librarian, and have worked as a librarian for over 20 years. My research interests center around information discovery and the technologies that facilitate this discovery. Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my four young kids and like to read, travel, and explore, baseball, and unplanned road trips are particular delights for me. 

I am currently conducting a listening tour among the University’s six schools and colleges to hear what we are doing well, what we need to do better, and any other feedback. I hope to use this data to best serve the University. My current goals are maintaining the strength of the library’s core services (resources, access, interlibrary loan), working towards better library awareness among our students, and advocating for open-access science across the campus. I hope that I will be able to speak to all our key administrators and faculty over the summer to further hone these goals.

I, along with all the library staff, want to congratulate the class of 2019 graduates at ATSU. We are so excited for you. We also welcome the entering classes, we will do our best to provide the resources to make your education successful. 

Best,

Hal Bright

University Library Director
