Letter From the Dean

I am pleased to share with you the latest news of our progress at University of Houston Libraries. In this issue, we highlight the importance of engaging with our community.

Each day, I’m inspired by the stories that illustrate how our students, faculty, and partners connect with UH Libraries. On any given day, the Library is abuzz with activity, from conferences and workshops, to Faculty Senate meetings, to students gathering for group study, and tours for new Coogs and their families. Everyone is welcome at UH Libraries.

Our Library is a reflection of the community with whom we collaborate. The newest Special Collections exhibit features the work of Ben DeSoto, a Houston photographer who has captured the unconventional side of the Bayou City for nearly forty years. A new digital collection from the Gulf Coast Archive and Museum of GLBT History is now available in the UH Digital Library. And we recently honored native Houstonian and UH alumnus Bill Sherrill, founder and co-chairman of the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Houston, whose military, career, family, and teaching records are preserved in UH Special Collections.

The impact of our engagement is strengthened through your partnership. Speaking on behalf of all of us at UH Libraries, we are deeply grateful for your support. Please visit us soon!
