Bill Prince retired from UTC on January 16th, after 27 years of service at Lupton Library as a reference/instruction librarian.
“I have truly found my 27 years at UTC to be fulfilling because of the friendly working relations with colleagues, students, and faculty. The highlight of my career has been providing reference service to our students, and working with colleagues within the reference department and the library.” Bill said. “On a personal note, I have enjoyed the fact that both my son and daughter attended UTC and were here for a total of 9 years.”
Professional highlights of Bill’s career include serving on the American Library Association (ALA) Council, chairing 4 committees for the Tennessee Library Association (TLA) and chairing 2 committees in the Southeast Library Association (SELA). Additionally, Bill published a peer-reviewed article that was selected by the Library Instruction Round Table as one of the top 20 library instruction articles of 1993.
Bill’s retirement plans include sports activities, travel, and taking classes at UTC.
We wish Bill all the best in this new phase of his life.
