Dear University of Chicago Faculty, Students and Staff,
As I begin my second week on campus, I would like to say how very happy I am to have arrived at the University of Chicago. The warm welcome I have received from so many of you in the last few days has made me feel immediately at home.
The University of Chicago’s status as one of the world’s premier academic and research institutions and its Library’s role in fueling intellectual inquiry and a transformative education are well known internationally. As the year unfolds, I look forward to learning much more about your work; about the ways you rely on the Library to support your research, teaching and study; and about the ways you see your needs evolving as you break new scholarly ground or advance in your education.
It will be my great pleasure to meet many more of you and to discuss these matters with you in the coming months.
With warm regards,
Brenda L. Johnson
Library Director and University Librarian
The University of Chicago Library
