As the Deputy University Librarian (DUL), I am responsible for oversight of daily Library operations and am the Libraries’ leader for several strategically important ventures. The DUL is the Vice Provost's principal adviser regarding operational and staff issues. I share responsibility with the Vice Provost for working with campus leaders and administrators to advance university-wide initiatives as well as representing the Library within University committees, and regional, national, and international research library organizations. I am responsible for liaising with the Stanford Coordinate libraries in the development of common goals and objectives and am responsible for developing, maintaining, and evolving collaborative and coordinated programs with research libraries in the Ivy Plus Library Confederation (IPLC) along with various national and major regional libraries in the UK and the European Community as well as selected libraries in Asia and the Antipodes.
