Dean Hired for New Graduate Library School

After an extensive search, which took about two years, Dr. Wayne Yenawine, Director of Libraries at the University of Louisville, and a former dean at Syracuse University Library School, was appointed as Dean of the new graduate library school on this date. Ken Toombs, Director of USC Libraries, recommended Dean Yenawine for the job after his visit to the University of Louisville to see an automated circulation system in place there.
