Ann Campion Riley appointed Vice Provost for Libraries and University Librarian

The University Libraries are excited to announce that Ann Campion Riley, acting director of MU Libraries, has been appointed to the new position of vice provost for libraries and university librarian effective July 1.

Riley joined MU in 2007 as the associate director for access, collections and technical services and was appointed acting director of MU Libraries in July 2015. During her tenure at Mizzou, she has increased partnerships with other AAU and SEC institutions and has been instrumental in fundraising, including a recent student initiative designed to enhance library offerings and services.

Riley is a nationally-recognized leader with nearly 30 years of professional service in academic and research libraries. She served as president of the Association of College and Research Libraries in 2015, representing more than 11,500 academic and research librarians, and was honored as a research library leadership fellow by the Association of Research Libraries. She is a writer and speaker on assessment and organizational culture in higher education.

Riley was formerly director for technical and access services at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. She was library director at Saint Louis Community College, Meramec, where she twice served as an acting dean and one year as chief campus academic officer. Other academic libraries where Riley has served in a professional capacity include Maryville University, the University of Missouri-St. Louis and New Mexico State University. She earned her B.A. in English and her M.S. in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois. She has an M.A. in English from the University of Missouri and pursued a Ph.D. in English at Saint Louis University.

Interim Chancellor and Provost Garnett Stokes released the following statement: 
"I am confident that she will continue to provide strong leadership for MU Libraries. She is a true champion and has tirelessly worked to support and preserve the library services and information resources upon which MU faculty, students and staff have come to rely."

We couldn't agree more. Congratulations, Vice Provost Riley!

Collections Budget Update with Cancellation Lists

Thank you to faculty, students, and staff who contributed to the difficult process of reducing our collections spending in FY17. We have completed the process for this fiscal year.

  • You may review lists of journals cancelled.
  • We stopped ordering books on April 1 and will resume after July 1. Please let your subject librarian know of materials you will need for the summer and early fall as soon as you can.
  • Please be aware especially of how these budget cuts may impact your students as they must rely more on interlibrary loan and MOBIUS for materials. These impacts include:


    • waiting for delivery of articles and books from other libraries;
    • shorter loan periods; and
    • stricter overdue fines from other libraries.
  • Although it’s tempting to use informal methods (I can haz pdf, SciHub, etc.) to obtain articles, be aware that these often involve violations of copyright and license agreements, can pose online security issues, and prevent us from knowing what you need. We will deliver materials via interlibrary loan as quickly as possible—and use request data to make future budget decisions.
  • Help us be more aware of what materials are used: please link to articles and other online materials rather than reposting pdfs.
  • Please do not reshelve materials used in the libraries. Just leave them on a table or reshelving area, so we can register that they’ve been used.

Our budget for FY18 is not yet final, but we will be reducing our collections spending again. Our first project towards this reduction will be to review the titles in our package of journals published by the University of Chicago Press (Chicago Complete). To contribute your feedback on these titles, please review the list posted on our Collections Review page. Please contribute feedback by May 30th.
