A Salute to Associate Dean Lehner
John Lehner, associate dean for resource management at UH Libraries, announced his retirement effective October 1. Lehner joined UH Libraries in 1998 as the human resources director, overseeing searches for librarian positions and streamlining the search process. In 2006, Lehner stepped into his current role, administering the budget, facilities, and business operations of the Libraries, as well as directing library technology services, metadata and digitization services, library human resources, and assessment and statistics. He was promoted to the rank of librarian in 2013, and two years later, was appointed to the Ambassador Kenneth R. Franzheim Endowed Professorship.
“John has served the Libraries laudably,” said Dean Jackson. “He exemplifies unwavering dedication to the University and the profession, and is a model of collegiality and advocacy that extends well beyond the Libraries. I’d like to thank John for his service and wish him the best on his well-earned retirement.”
