We are excited to announce the appointment of Judy Farrar as the new Interim Dean of Library Services. Ms. Farrar joined the UMass Dartmouth library in 1996 as the Archives and Special Collections Librarian. As Provost Huang noted in his campus announcement, “Ms. Farrar has seen the Claire T. Carney Library Archives and Special Collections grow exponentially, from less than 100 linear feet to a collection of over 2,000 linear feet. She has been part of major initiatives like the establishment of the Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese American Archives, the addition of the papers of former Congressman Barney Frank, the acquisition of the Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey Archives, and a major facility renovation.” Ms. Farrar also has a long history of innovation and collaboration with library, campus, and community partners. We look forward to her applying her knowledge and experience in this new role!
