In case you missed it in Sunday's NYT, there's an opening to be dean of USC Libraries. It was pretty hard notice to ignore - a half-page horizontal ad in the Week in Review section that trumpets in two decks of large headline type: "Dean of USC Libraries University of Southern California" (a cool $80,000 ad by my calculations). Isaacson, Miller is handling the search. Besides the libraries dean, USC is looking to replace Geoffrey Cowan as dean of the Annenberg School for Communication. (Is it my imagination or did this get remarkably little play when it was announced last month?) The school also needs a new dean of the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
