“If you’re doing serious research, then you need an academic website,” says Chris Dames, dean of libraries at the University of Missouri—St. Louis. “Summon, the new service, should help both faculty and students.” The new dean is ahead of the trend—along with bringing in the Summon® service, he’s improving the library’s physical space to meet student expectations. Not afraid of change, Dames is making sure that every inch of the library is wireless and adding a coffee service so students can study in caffeinated peace.
