Dean Donald Gilstrap

As we close out 2021, my heartfelt thanks go out to University Libraries faculty and staff for their hard work and dedication. We strive to meet the needs of The University of Alabama community, supporting student and faculty success by providing a multitude of scholarly resources, specialized equipment, and research and data services. While you browse our annual report, please note the many significant accomplishments of our knowledgeable and talented University Libraries faculty and staff. Through assessment and continuous improvement of our facilities, policies, practices, resources, and services, we believe in a culture of accountability in all that we do. The saying that drives The University of Alabama’s Capital Campaign, “a rising tide lifts all boats,” is personified in spirit and truth by University Libraries, as the resources and services we make available support the success of all students and faculty of The University of Alabama. We want to extend our sincere thanks to the University Libraries Leadership Board and to our donors and our colleagues across the state of Alabama and throughout the United States. We are accomplishing great things at The University of Alabama Libraries, and with your support in 2022, the Tide will continue to Rise!

Dr. Donald L. Gilstrap, Dean and Professor of University Libraries
