With Paul Gherman retiring, a search is underway for a new University Librarian. Three candidates have been invited for on-campus, two-day interviews in April. In sessions open to the University community, April 17, 22, and 29, each of the three will talk about the thinking and planning that will need to go into a comprehensive study of the Heard Library. This study will begin with a campus-wide conversation aimed at identifying the characteristics of the academic library that Vanderbilt will need to carry it forward through the first half of the 21st century, to be followed by the launching of a major library-enhancement effort. There will be time for questions and answers following the introductory remarks.
The names of the three candidates, presentation times and locations, and links to their resumes and interview schedules are available on the Search for University Librarian website, http://staffweb.library.vanderbilt.edu/resumes/ULUpdates.htm
