Jeffrey has more than twenty-five years’ experience working in academic and public libraries. In July 2012, Jeffrey began his tenure as University Librarian at Washington University in St. Louis. In his first year of leadership, Jeffrey has overseen the drastic expansion of Washington University’s Olin Library operating hours, the creation of formal partnerships with the Writing Center and the Office of Geographic Information Systems, and the acquisition of over $3.5 million in academic resources. In addition, Jeffrey has directed the formation of the Visual Media Research Lab: a Libraries-based resource that builds upon the strengths of the Film & Media Archive and Modern Graphic History Library. This effort was designed to mobilize the Libraries’ visual research collections, making them more easily integrated into teaching, learning, and research.

Jeffrey previously served as University Librarian at McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario Canada, Associate Dean at Wayne State University Library System in Detroit, Michigan and Head of Systems at Wright State University Libraries in Dayton, Ohio. Under Jeffrey’s leadership, the McMaster Library became the first Canadian recipient of the ACRL Excellence in Academic Libraries Award. In 2004, Jeffrey was recognized for his innovation by Library Journal in their “Movers and Shakers” edition.
