Langley named dean of UConn Library

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Anne Langley, Penn State University Libraries’ associate dean for research collections and scholarly communication, has been named dean of the UConn Library at the University of Connecticut.

Langley came to Penn State in summer 2015 and in April 2017 was named one of 34 Fellows of the 2017 Leading Change Institute, sponsored by the Council on Library and Information Resources and EDUCAUSE.

“In her time at Penn State, Anne has accomplished many things, from hiring 16 faculty positions, including five in departmental leadership positions and four new strategic positions, to collaborating with her senior colleagues to develop plans for several new University Libraries strategic initiatives,” Barbara I. Dewey, dean of University Libraries and Scholarly Communications, said. “I wish her the best and look forward to seeing her in her new role as my colleague at Connecticut’s land-grant university.”

A national search is underway to fill the associate dean for research collections and scholarly communication position, and the job description has been published online.
