A Message from the Dean

Welcome to UK Libraries! Whether you’re beginning your first semester of college or putting the finishing touches on a lifetime of scholarship, our librarians, archivists, and staff members are eager to work with you to accomplish your goals. With our experience and expertise, we can help you explore our incredible collections, discover our wide-ranging resources and services, create innovative new knowledge, and forge long-lasting connections with peers, mentors, and collaborators.

I feel proud to be a part of the UK community, and inspired by the exchange of knowledge and perspectives I see around me every day across our libraries. As we continue to adapt and grow, we bear in mind that we are the stewards of our Commonwealth's history and culture, as well as the knowledge we create together. We hold a collective responsibility to put that knowledge to good use creating empowered and resilient communities, a welcoming and inspiring university, and a just and inclusive world. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together.

Doug Way, Dean of Libraries
