As we near the end of the fall semester and the campus is buzzing with students preparing for finals, I’m reminded of why I have much to be grateful for. I want to extend my sincere thanks to each of you for everything you do to make University of Houston Libraries an excellent place to work, learn, and discover.
The fulfillment of our mission of advancing student success, knowledge creation and preservation, and globally competitive research happens through you. It’s how we seek continual improvement of our spaces, services, and resources to facilitate students’ academic achievements. It’s how we preserve and make accessible unique collections that serve research and scholarship. Your partnership and collaboration is what enriches us and expands our impact.
Next week, the MD Anderson Library will host two of our most popular student-centered events: Finals Mania, a nighttime pancake breakfast served in the library, and Paws and Relax, with Faithful Paws therapy dogs providing students with a fun and stress-relieving study break. These fun end-of-semester events help us celebrate our students and recognize all of the hard work they’ve accomplished throughout their academic careers.
I am honored to be a part of the UH family, and proud to work alongside such dedicated students, staff, and faculty. I wish you and your family and friends a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
