Library director reflects on dramatic changes as retirement draws near

“People who have known Skokie Public Library Director Carolyn Anthony for more than three decades also know that the library she will leave behind this summer has little resemblance to the one she inherited.The library has expanded and been redesigned and reorganized; long-needed parking was finally acquired; resources and databases and materials for checkout were changed and re-prioritized; programming evolved and expanded substantially — and all of it accomplished not just to keep up with 21st Century needs, Anthony says, but to try to stay ahead of them.” (via Chicago Tribune)

The University of Chicago Library Director Judith Nadler to retire

“After a distinguished 48-year career, Library Director and University Librarian Judith Nadler, who oversaw the planning and construction of the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library, will retire on June 30, 2014. A national search is underway to identify her successor. Under Nadler’s leadership, the University of Chicago Library flourished as a prized and effective research tool for students and faculty. With its 11.9 million volumes, noted collections in fields ranging from sociology to the history of science, rich selection of non-English holdings and commitment to keeping its collection on campus, the Library has become a destination for scholars and a model for other institutions worldwide.” (via The University of Chicago Library News)
