University Librarian Search Begins

Posted by UCSB Libraries on December 19, 2006

A campus-wide committee is in the process of recommending a new University Librarian for UC Santa Barbara Libraries. The new librarian replaces Sarah M. Pritchard, who left this summer to become the Charles Deering McCormick Librarian at Northwestern University. Sarah served as UL for seven years.
Chair of the search committee, Dean Jane Conoley of the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, called the first meeting of the group in August. David Tambo, Head of Special Collections, and Susan Mahaffey, library staff member, are among members of the
search committee.

The new UL will come at a time of rapidly changing technology, increased enrollment, and expanded graduate student and faculty needs. The committee hopes to have a new UL in place by September 2007 for the start of the new school year.
