Andy Corrigan Appointed Interim Dean of Tulane University Libraries

A Tulanian since 1994, Corrigan has served as associate dean of libraries since 2005 and is also the library’s chief collections officer, directing its collections planning and expenditures. Corrigan has often assisted the university on committees central to institutional accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) as well as with architectural planning for campus library spaces. Corrigan planned and directed the library’s recovery after Hurricane Katrina, which included the salvage and replacement of lost or damaged collections and remediation of the library’s flooded spaces.

Corrigan holds an EdD in educational administration from West Virginia University and an MLIS from the University of Rhode Island.

At Tulane, Corrigan will serve as interim dean while the university searches for a successor to David Banush, who stepped down in October to become dean of University Libraries at the University of South Carolina.
