Recruitment of Librarians Continues

In the fall 2006 issue of Update we announced six successful recent recruitments for new librarians. Four additional positions have since been filled in archives, acquisitions, education, French & Italian and Classics, and even more new staff are on the way.

She has two master's degrees from the University of Michigan, in Information (specializing in archives and records management) and History, as well as a B.A. from the University of Oregon. She comes to UCI from the University of Washington, having held previous positions at Northeastern and Yale. Her varied experience has made her expert in university archives, records management, management of born-digital archival materials, and digital library projects.
