Head of Reference Programs

I am pleased to announce that Sarah Wenzel will be joining the Humanities &
History Division of the Libraries in the position of Head of Reference
Programs. Sarah is currently the Reference Coordinator in the Humanities
Library at MIT. Her previous experience includes positions in libraries at
Boston University and the University of Illinois. She also catalogs for
American Book Prices Current. Sarah's MLS and MA in French Studies are from
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

As many of you may recall, the report of the Reference Services Task Force
pointed out that a librarian with a Libraries-wide role in areas such as
virtual reference, a stronger web presence for reference, promotion of
reference services to our users, and developing staff expertise in using
our increasing variety of electronic databases would be very valuable. This
report came at the time when Eileen McIlvaine was retiring and contributed
to our restructuring the job responsibilities to create the Head of
Reference Programs position.

I'd like to thank all of you who participated in the interview process and
provided input on the candidates. When Sarah arrives, her office will be in
Butler, room 309. I look forward to our working together with Sarah to
build on to the excellent reference services available at Columbia.

Director, Humanities & History
