On July 24, 2017, Barton College’s Hackney Library welcomed new leadership to its ranks. Robert (Rob) Cagna has taken over the helm as the new Dean and Associate Professor of Library Science at the library.
Rob comes to us from West Virginia University where he was the library director at the Charleston campus. Before that, he was the Department Head of Access and Document Delivery Services at the University of Pennsylvania Biomedical Library.
Rob has an MSLS degree from the Catholic University of America, an MA degree from Washington Theological Union, and BA and JD degrees from the University of Florida. He is a Distinguished Member of the Academy of Health Information Professionals. Rob’s interests include the history of the book, the history of medicine, and the history of postal communications.
He is married to Mary Elisabeth (Mary Beth) Cagna; they live in Wilson and have two adult children, Brooke and Bryan, and two small dogs, Bertie and Zelda.
We are delighted to have Rob on board. Drop by and say hello when you have a chance!
