News in Brief

New dean sold on Marquette

“I’m so glad the university selected me. This is an excellent school with an excellent reputation, leadership and library staff.”

During her first visit to campus Janice Simmons-Welburn realized something seemed familiar. She had read about Marquette’s library in The Chronicle of Higher Education — and now she was in it. The library has been widely saluted in academic circles for its emphasis on providing students with technology-rich resources. That approach fits her vision for where libraries need to go. Add in her respect for Marquette’s emphasis on engaging students with the world and she was sold.

Simmons-Welborn accepted the post of dean of libraries and joined the university staff in early April. “The more I read about Marquette the more intrigued I became,” she says. “I’m so glad the university selected me. This is an excellent school with an excellent reputation, leadership and library staff.”

Simmons-Welburn previously served as associate dean of libraries at the University of Arizona.
