“The University Libraries are a critical part of our students’ and faculty success. I would like to thank the Search Advisory Committee for identifying a pool of highly qualified candidates,” said Chancellor Tom Apple. Added Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Reed Dasenbrock, “A university’s library stands at the very center of any university’s attempt to realize its dual mission of creating new knowledge through research and disseminating that knowledge through formal instruction as well as other means.  It is hard to imagine a more important position at UH Mānoa today than the position of University Librarian, and we are fortunate to have two strong candidates for this position.”
