The Director, Scholarly Connections, provides administrative leadership in implementing a core strategic direction that extends the Libraries’ staff expertise in library and information science, archival and records management; and its professional knowledge networks and services to integrate academic experiences with Drexel’s strengthened connections to scholarship.
