The Giustina Forest Foundation has pledged $1 million to endow the Giustina Director of Special Collections and University Archives. In the upcoming months and in perpetuity, the gift ensures that the library will always be able to recruit and retain the strongest possible candidate to fill this essential leadership role.
We are incredibly thankful to the Giustina Forest Foundation for this exceptional and highly relevant gift,” said Adriene Lim, dean of libraries and Philip H. Knight Chair. “Among other important duties, the director is ultimately responsible for overseeing the permanent preservation of unique, often priceless materials. The person who fills this role will also facilitate public access to these collections and, in that way, is a valuable partner of our high-achieving faculty members and students.”
Meanwhile no word on a settlement for former Archivist James Fox, who was fired by Scott Coltrane for what Coltrane prejudicially called “unlawful” actions in the release of the UO presidential archives. Coltrane wouldn’t release the investigative report that supposedly backed up that claim.
Speaking of public access, Dean Adriene Lim is still refusing to release her emails to the ALA about “the incident” unless I pay her $210.
