About Hector Escobar

I have been the Director of Education & Information Delivery since August of 2007. As director I oversee public services within Roesch Library, which include Access Services and Reference & Instruction. I have held a number of leadership roles within the American Library Association and the Association of College & Research Libraries. Prior to coming to the University of Dayton, I was the Latino Studies Librarian at the University of Notre Dame from 2002 to 2007 and was appointed Notre Dame’s first librarian-residence in 2000. My research interests are in library end-user technologies and management of resources.
Currently, I serve as a member to OhioLINK’s User Services Committee, the collection manager for the Department of Psychology and Criminal Justice Studies program and also collect in areas of ethnic studies and library science.
