I‘m very pleased to announce that Richenda Brim joined Stanford Libraries on November 10, 2014, as our new Head of Preservation. Richenda has had a rich history in Preservation, from the repair of books to paper conservation, from the formulation of preservation assessments to recovery plans. Richenda comes to us from the Getty Research Institute where she most recently has served as Librarian for Administration and Special Projects, focusing on collection digitization, recovery planning and grant-funded projects.

SUL has the following new positions this week:
For a complete description of open positions within SUL, go to the Stanford Library Jobs page.
Marina Verdian has resigned her position as Special Project Manager, and will be leaving SUL as of December 1st. The Facilities team is very sad to see her go, particularly during Big Game week, since she will be leaving us to take on the position of Facilities Director at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley! Rivalries aside, this is an excellent opportunity for Marina, and I hope you will join me in congratulating her on her new role.
