Carl Grant, former associate dean for knowledge services and chief technology officer, University of Oklahoma Libraries, has been named interim dean of libraries, effective July 1. He succeeds Rick Luce, who served as dean from July 2012 through June 2018.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to lead this respected organization and to build on Dean Luce’s vision,” said Grant. “My experience working in and with academic libraries around the globe, internally as well as from the business side, gives me a unique insight into the opportunities, challenges and solutions facing OU Libraries. We’ve made great strides in transforming the libraries here and I am looking forward to continuing this transformation and building on our momentum to do even more.”
