Prestigious appointment for University Librarian
Dr Stella Butler, the University Librarian and Keeper of the Brotherton Collection, has been elected as Chair of Research Libraries UK.
Speaking about her appointment, Dr Butler said: "I am delighted to have been elected Chair of the RLUK Board. This is a pivotal time for higher education and our libraries face many changes and challenges including the increasing dominance of the electronic environment, the open access agenda, the management and curation of research data as well as the exploitation of the vast riches in our special collections. I look forward to working with board members and the RLUK executive team whose collective experience and expertise will enable RLUK to drive, develop and shape the agenda for libraries and scholarly information in the UK."
