I am delighted to announce Richenda Brim will be joining SUL as the Head of the Preservation Department.

Ms. Brim comes to us from the Getty Research Institute where she has served as Librarian for Research and Special Projects since June 2009. In this capacity she has planned major collection moves, renovated collection storage spaces, and managed the digitization of rare book collections. Previous to that she was Head of Collection Maintenance where she oversaw bindery services, shelf preparation and repair for core collection materials. In both positions she has worked on updating disaster plans and developing business continuity strategies for the GRI. This is not her first time in the San Francisco Bay Area as early in her career she worked at UCSF as a Circulation Assistant and then Senior Book Mender.

It is with great enthusiasm that I announce the appointment of Philip Evan Schreur, currently Head of the Metadata Department, as Interim Assistant University Librarian for Technical and Access Services following the retirement of Catherine M. Tierney. Phil is an expert in modern and emerging metadata standards and issues. Furthermore, he comes with Catherine Tierney’s strong endorsement for his ability to undertake this new role without missing a beat.
