Dean’s Message

This year was quite extraordinary, with Syracuse University and most colleges and universities across the country making the difficult but prudent decision to suspend on-campus classes effective Friday, March 13, 2020. For the first time in my five years as Dean of the Libraries, this meant that the Libraries closed our buildings for an extended period of time. However, we did not suspend operations. Like our peers across campus and globally, we transitioned to providing services remotely and online, until oncampus classes resumed in the fall 2020. As you’d expect, this unprecedented situation impacted many of the numbers included in this year’s report in various directions. Although our in-person services were lower than normal, we were able to offer more resources online for the University’s quick transition in the Spring 2020 semester. We are especially grateful to the resource providers who offered free or expanded access for some licensed e-resources. That temporary access supported faculty teaching, enabled students to better complete their assignments, and alleviated some of the burden that our team carried to accommodate scanning, electronic delivery, and purchase requests for the print resources. I am proud of the work that our Libraries was able to provide amidst a difficult situation.

Sincerely, David Seaman

Syracuse University Libraries Dean and University Librarian
