Feeling Sappy about Dale Prince

Posted by on February 6th, 2018 Posted in: All Posts

Dear Colleagues in the SEA Region –

Some of you may have heard this news in other ways, if so, I apologize for the duplication.

Why I am feeling “sappy” about Dale Prince…

Sappy = Sad and happy.

Sad for me, the HS/HSL, the SEA, and the NNLM.

Happy for Dale Prince who has been selected as the new Director of Libraries at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans.

Dale has been here at the HS/HSL for almost 20 years, starting as our Head of Circulation. He moved to the RML as a Coordinator in 2002 and then became the Executive Director in 2011. Through it all he has been a superb “frolleague,” and an essential member of the HS/HSL Leadership Team even though we had to endure him during his Billy Idol white hair days.

He has contributed so much professionally and personally to the SEA and the HS/HSL and to say we are going to miss him is an understatement.

His last day here will be May 1 which we greatly appreciate since it gets us through this agreement year and the dreaded end of the year RML reports.

We have begun recruiting for his replacement as. Please see the position description. Deadline for applications? March 2.

We have plans for an Acting ED who will overlap a bit with Dale to insure continuity. More about that later.

Please join me in congratulating Dale. He will be great as a director and LSUHSC is lucky to have him! He says this is the part where I break into uncontrollable sobs!

Best –
