Drew University is pleased to welcome Andrew Bonamici as Drew’s new University Librarian. In this role, he reports directly to the Provost and is responsible for leading and innovating the University’s libraries and special collections.
Previously serving as Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives and Program Development in the University of Oregon Libraries, Andrew brings many years of library administrative experience to Drew and has served as Associate University Librarian, Associate Dean for Media & Digital Strategies, and Interim Director of Oregon’s Digital Scholarship Center at the University of Oregon.
Andrew holds a BA in Music History, Literature and Theory from Marylhurst University and an MLS from the University of Michigan. He is a graduate of the 2005 Frye/Leading Change Institute and has also been active in EDUCAUSE.
Andrew has told us that “this is a truly exciting time to lead the Drew University Library. Academic libraries and archives are hubs of intellectual life, touching every part of the mission – teaching and learning, student engagement, faculty and student research and scholarship, and community outreach. I am grateful to the search committee, the library faculty and staff, and Provost Liebowitz for providing this opportunity to serve.”
