Welcome to the UK Libraries' Faculty Resource Site


Welcome New UK Libraries Faculty!

To continue building a great university we must continue to build a strong faculty.  We are committed to recruiting the highest quality faculty, providing the best environment for our faculty to succeed, and retaining the best faculty to draw upon their knowledge and experience.

I hope that this resource guide will help you during your transition to the University of Kentucky Libraries.  Moreover, I hope that you will consider every UK Libraries faculty member a resource you can also turn to when needed.  We are glad that you are here, and please let me know if I can be of assistance to you.                                                                    

                                                                            Best wishes,
