    The Library is pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Nutefall as the next University Librarian.

    Jennifer will join the University community in August 2012.

    As University Librarian Jennifer will serve as the public face of the Library, interacting closely with students, faculty, staff, and the community. She will facilitate the use of a broad array of information resources in support of teaching, learning, scholarship, and integrated education; provide leadership for the library staff; and work with other administrative leaders in supporting the University’s Strategic Plan.

    Jennifer is currently the Associate University Librarian for Innovative User Services at Oregon State University. In this role she planned and supervised a reorganization that enhanced support for faculty research and student learning; provided the vision and resources for a learning commons redesign; introduced a rigorous assessment program; and facilitated the development of a teaching philosophy for the library.

    Jennifer earned a master’s degree in Library Science from Syracuse University and a master’s degree in higher education administration from George Washington University.

    Ron Danielson, Vice Provost for Information Services and Chief Information Officer, acknowledges Robert Boyd, Taeock Kim, Elizabeth McKeigue, and Deborah Whiteman for their exceptional service as Co-Interim University Librarians, roles which will continue until Jennifer joins us in August.
