Campus Champion

Director of Libraries Jennifer Kronenbitter’s goals align with the theme for National Library Week (April 3 to 9)  “Connect with Your Library.” A dedicated library staff continually engages with faculty, staff and students and promotes individual and collaborative research, learning and teaching. For 16 years, four of those as director, Jennifer has shared her forward-thinking visions to connect our campus community with information, resources, technology and assistance. Her service extends to SUNY Libraries where she serves on the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force, identifying spaces and support that benefit our collective communities. Connect with the library today and in the weeks ahead and discover a world of information and knowledge.
