Provost Rafael L. Bras has appointed Andrew Zangwill, professor in the School of Physics, chair of the Library Faculty Advisory Board (LFAB). Zangwill will assume the role from Haskell Beckham, professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering.  

“As chair, Professor Zangwill will help strengthen the relationship among the board, the library and Tech faculty on issues such as scholarly communication, library collections and services,” said Catherine Murray-Rust, dean and director of libraries.”  

The 20-member LFAB was created in 2007 to encourage communication among Institute faculty members and the Library. 

“I am delighted to assume the duties of chair of the Library Faculty Advisory Board,” Zangwill said. “Not everyone realizes that the library plays an even bigger part in student education and in faculty teaching and research than it did in the Dark Ages before the Internet.”
