*Staff Updates, IUB

Effective March 3, 2003, Doug McKinney will move from the position of Assistant to the Dean to focus primarily on statistical data analysis and assessment for the Libraries. His new title will be Statistical Data and Assessment Analyst. Doug's familiarity with the Libraries and his work with the Libraries budget requests, extensive reporting and collection of data for the Libraries and for all the campuses state-wide have provided him with the knowledge and expertise needed to assist in building an assessment infrastructure that will allow us to respond effectively to statistics and assessment needs. Due to the reorganization of responsibilities, we will post the Assistant to the Dean position. The posting will be released within the next week or so and the position will remain open until filled.
