Kory Staheli is new director of Howard W. Hunter Law Library at BYU's J. Reuben Clark Law School

Kevin J Worthen, dean of the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, announced the appointment of Kory Staheli as the new director of the Howard W. Hunter Law Library.

After a nationwide search, Staheli was chosen from a group of five finalists to replace former library director Constance Lundberg, who will continue teaching part-time in BYU’s law school.

“Kory Staheli has a clear vision of the role the library plays in furthering the mission of the law school and the university,” said Dean Worthen. “He also has the experience and the skills needed to provide leadership in carrying out that role. I look forward to the great things he and the rest of the dedicated library faculty and staff will accomplish in the coming years.”

Herb Cihak, director of the University of Arkansas’ Young Law Library and a mentor and supporter of Staheli, felt privileged to have associated with Staheli through national law library associations.

“In all my interactions with him, he has demonstrated a commitment to furthering the law library profession, to serving his fellow human beings, and most importantly, to representing the faith that he professes in a manner that brings credit to him and to the institution that he loves,” Cihak said. “It should be fun to sit back and watch one of the truly ‘good guys’ help lead his team to victory.”

Staheli graduated from BYU’s Law School, and after three years of private practice, returned to the law school as a reference librarian. He obtained his master’s degree in library and information science and was promoted to head of Reference Services and then associate director of Public Services.

He then left BYU to become associate director of the law library at the newly founded law school at the University of Las Vegas, where he assembled and trained the staff as well as developed and acquired the new collection. Staheli returned to BYU last year to serve as associate director of the law library.
