Richard Luce, Vice Provost and Director of Libraries for Emory University, has been named Dean of the University of Oklahoma Libraries.
Here's an excerpt from the press release:
Rick Luce, a librarian upon whose expertise the National Science Foundation has drawn to serve on four Blue Ribbon panels, has been selected to serve as dean of the University of Oklahoma Libraries, pending approval by the OU Board of Regents at its May meeting. Luce currently is vice provost and director of libraries at Emory University and previously was director at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He will fill the position being vacated by longtime OU library dean Sul Lee, who last year announced his plans to retire, effective June 30, after serving as dean for more than 30 years.
In addition to serving as University Libraries dean, Luce will hold appointments as a professor, as the Peggy V. Helmerich Chair and as associate vice president for research, OU Norman campus.
