Library Administration

The Library is administered by the Dean of Libraries and three Associate University Librarians who oversee Administrative and Research Strategies, Digital Strategies, and Collections Strategies.

The Dean of Libraries reports to the Provost. The Provost and the Dean are advised by two consultative bodies, the University Library Committee and the Library Board of Governors. The Dean of Libraries also oversees the Northwestern University Press, as a separate organization.
