As we approach Judith Nadler’s retirement, I am pleased to announce that Alice Schreyer has agreed to serve as Interim Library Director while the search for Judi’s successor continues.
Alice is the Associate University Librarian for Area Studies and Special Collections. She is a nationally respected expert on special collections librarianship and was the founding editor of the journal Rare Books & Manuscripts. She currently serves as the chair of the Rare Book School Board of Directors. Alice came to the University in 1991 and has become a deeply experienced and respected leader who will ensure that the Library continues to serve as an outstanding resource at the heart of the University’s academic mission.
Judi will retire on June 30 after nearly five decades of service to the University. Under her leadership, the Library has flourished as a prized and effective center of research and learning for students and faculty.
I am grateful to Alice for taking on this important responsibility and to Judi for her exceptional vision and leadership during her tenure as Director and University Librarian.
I also want to thank the members of the search committee for their continuing efforts to identify a new Director and University Librarian. I look forward to sharing news on the progress of that search in the coming months.
