Washington University in St. Louis has named Mimi Calter as vice provost and university librarian, effective this fall.
Calter is currently deputy university librarian at Stanford University, where she has served the libraries for 16 years. In her role of deputy university librarian, she has helped develop the libraries’ $84 million budget, lead its 400-person staff, expand digital technologies and repositories, and manage capital projects, including relocation of the second-largest campus library and development of the David Rumsey Map Center. Calter earned her undergraduate degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania and graduate degrees in business administration and in library and information science from Drexel University.
At Washington University, Calter will succeed Denise Stephens, who stepped down in May to begin her new appointment as dean of libraries at The University of Oklahoma. Leland Deeds has been serving as interim vice provost and university librarian since May 1.
