Deaths

Joseph J. Branin, director of the University Library at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia and editor of College & Research Libraries (C&RL), has died. As editor of C&RL, Branin continued the efforts of his predecessors to seek a way to make C&RL an open access journal, and it was during his tenure that the ACRL Board of Directors committed to moving C&RL to this model. C&RL thrived under his leadership, and his contributions to the research base will enhance the profession for years to come. Before joining KAUST in 2009, Branin served as director of libraries at Ohio State University and director of libraries at the State University of New York-Stony Brook. He also held positions at the University of Minnesota, University of Georgia, and Kent State University.
