John Eye, Ed.D.


Professional

I work at Southern Utah University in the Sherratt Library. As the Dean of Library Services, I oversee the general operation of the library and work to provide better access to information for students, faculty, and staff including fundraising and promotion of the library off-campus.

As you can see in the pictures on the right, the Sherratt Library is nestled in the mountains of the Southern Rockies which makes a great environment for a walk or bike ride to work each day.

The unique architecture of the Sherratt Library sets it apart from most libraries. Under the large glass circle is a spectacular reading room that serves as a quiet area for students to read and study under the stars.
