Dean’s Message

The past year was challenging for us all as colleges and universities provided teaching and learning in different hybrid environments. Similarly, Syracuse University Libraries operated in this part virtual, part in-person space. Where we were able to safely offer in-person services, even at reduced capacity, we did. And we also offered more virtual and online services and resources than ever before. Having a foot in both worlds posed challenges, but it also provided numerous lessons.


The data that we share in this report provides a snapshot of this unique period in time. Some figures, like the number of visitors to our buildings, have dropped considerably. Others, like the number of electronic resources acquired, have risen. The information is an interesting datapoint. However, it does not capture the resilience of our staff during this time. It does not convey the value of our contributions to the students and faculty we serve. And it does not communicate the sincere gratitude we feel towards our donors and those who have supported the Libraries during these challenging times.

Sincerely,

David Seaman

Syracuse University Libraries Dean and University Librarian
