    I’m very disappointed to see that the Institution did not hire a professional librarian as director of Smith Memorial Library. Professional librarians have graduate level training in Library and Information Science and are uniquely placed to manage libraries as they transition into the 21st century. While I’m sure that Mr. Ekstrom means well and has great intentions, I doubt that he has the training, education, and skillset to lead the library into the future the in the way that Jon Schmitz has done with the Archives.
