Alexander Rolfe, MA, MLIS

University Librarian

Head of Technical Services


I came to George Fox in 2001 as a Reference Librarian.  I became Technical Services Librarian in 2007, and then in 2020 became the library director as well.

What do you do at Fox?

As University Librarian, I lead a delightful team of librarians and staff dedicated to serving students.  As Technical Services Librarian, I oversee acquisitions, cataloging, and periodicals.  My work includes the GFU Digital Commons, where we showcase faculty and student scholarship; we also publish some open textbooks and journals.  I'm our lead for any major library system migrations.

Beyond the Library

I enjoy camping with my four children, reading, frisbee, and board games.
