Jenne Klotz

Development & Philanthropy Librarian, Professor

About me

I provide oversight for philanthropic activities for JMU Libraries and work to help tell the story of the Libraries. I work with JMU Alumni Relations, Events, Advancement, and the JMU Foundation to identify opportunities for collaboration.

I have a B.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University in Art History and an M.L.I.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

I have been a librarian at JMU since 2001. I have also worked as a law librarian and in a public library system.

About Communications & Outreach

We lead communications, marketing, and outreach on behalf of JMU Libraries. Our communications reach a variety of audiences, including current and prospective students, faculty, staff, donors, alumni, JMU parents and families, and the local community.

The Communications & Outreach team manages promotion, media relations, messaging, and branding for the Libraries. We collaborate with University Communications, University Marketing & Branding, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Office of Admissions. We also partner with various units within University Advancement to coordinate the Libraries’ participation in fundraising.

About Libraries Administration

We support and challenge JMU Libraries’ staff and faculty to live up to our guiding statements — as we work together to provide excellent library and educational technology resources, spaces, services, and expertise to our campus community. Libraries’ Administration includes Communications and Outreach, Data Analytics, Facilities Operations, Finance and Human Resources, and the office of the Dean.
