About David Pavelich

As Associate Dean of Special Collections and Collections Strategy, I provide leadership for library collections as well as eight departments and functional areas: the Department of Special Collections (rare books and manuscripts), Archives and Records Management, Kohler Art Library, Mills Music Library, Collection Development, Scholarly Communications, the Office of the Gender and Women's Studies Librarian, and Shelving and Storage. I work broadly across disciplines, while the areas under my leadership have a significant focus on the humanities and the arts. I work to ensure that our collections meet the needs of our users and that our services are responsive, expert, and inclusive.
