Hello, my name is Jon Cawthorne, Associate University Librarian for Public Services. I joined the BC community on January 3, 2011. My career has focused on leading academic libraries. Before coming to BC, I was Interim Dean of Library and Information Access at San Diego State University. And before that, I held various positions at the University of Oregon, Ohio State University, National Public Radio, and the Congressional Research Service within the Library of Congress.

In my new position I am part of the senior management team, working with Tom Wall, University Librarian. Coordinating library services that allow users to discover all BC Libraries' treasures, personnel and facilities is something I'm very passionate about. The input from students is important and will ultimately help us improve our new and ongoing services. If you have suggestions or questions, I would love to hear from you. (If you are interested in a career in libraries, I'd love to talk about this profession, too.) You can stop by O'Neill 410b, contact me at 617-552-8709 or at jon.cawthorne@bc.edu.
