Yolanda Cooper has been named university librarian at Emory University, effective January 15, 2014. Cooper is currently librarian associate professor, deputy university librarian, and acting dean and university librarian at University of Miami. The role of Emory university librarian has been redefined as part of an organizational restructuring that has combined Emory’s library and IT organizations. This restructuring has been led by Rich Mendola, enterprise CIO and senior vice provost of library services and digital scholarship. Mendola served as interim vice provost and director of the libraries from June 2012, when Rick Luce was named dean of libraries at University of Oklahoma. On January 15, 2013, Mendola was appointed to his current role, which was a newly created position. For more information about Cooper’s appointment, see the October 3 Emory news story, “Emory Names New University Librarian.”
