New Dean of the Library Appointed

After a nationwide search, J. Kevin Reynolds joins the library staff.

After a nationwide search through the summer months, Wofford has announced the appointment of a new dean of the library.

J. Kevin Reynolds (pictured above) had been the associate university librarian at the Jesse Ball DuPont Library at Sewanee: the University of the South.

At Sewanee, Reynolds coordinated day-to-day operations of the library and archives, supervised a staff of 18 operating out of two different buildings, worked to plan and successfully manage the library budget and served in a liaison role with the heads of social science departments.

A graduate of Western Kentucky University with a major in anthropology and religious studies, he completed graduate studies in Hebrew Bible at Vanderbilt University and earned a master of science in information science at the University of Tennessee.

Reynolds has held a number of leadership positions in the American Library Association (ALA), including service on the presidential advisory committee. He will lead the planning for new library facilities in the context of Wofford’s new strategic vision.
