To the Temple Community:

From Tuesday, Sept. 28, through Thursday, Sept. 30, we will have a campus visit for the first candidate for the position of Vice Provost for University Libraries and Director, Paley Library.  His name is Larry Alford and he is the deputy university librarian at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  His vita is available at the following Web sites: http://www.temple.edu/news/candidates/Alford.doc in Word format and http://www.temple.edu/news/candidates/Alford.pdf in Acrobat format.

Larry is the first of the candidates selected for an on-campus visit by a search committee made up of faculty, librarians, a dean, students and administrators.

Faculty members, students and staff are urged to meet the candidate at one of the sessions listed below.  For this very important position in support of the academic core of the University, your input is extremely important.

In other sessions, the candidate will have the chance to meet with library staff, deans and University leaders.

On behalf of the search committee, I encourage you to attend one of the sessions and meet the candidate.  We believe that once he meets our faculty and students, he will be impressed with the opportunities presented by Temple University.

Thank you,

Dick Englert
Deputy Provost and Dean of the University College
