Michigan State University (MSU) has named Terri Miller interim dean of MSU Libraries, effective July 1, 2022.
Miller has served as associate dean for teaching, learning, and research engagement in MSU Libraries since 2020. She has worked in MSU Libraries since 1999, with her initial role as the libraries’ bibliographer for Russia, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. She has progressed through numerous leadership roles in the libraries, starting with coordinator for area studies collections, followed by head of reference services and assistant director for public services, to associate dean.
Miller earned a master of library science degree from Kent State University and a master’s in Russian history from The Ohio State University. She has published and presented widely in a number of areas related to research libraries’ engagement with faculty and students.
At MSU, Miller will serve as interim dean of libraries while the university searches for a successor to Joseph Salem Jr., who has accepted a position at Duke University as the Rita DiGiallonardo Holloway University Librarian and vice provost for library affairs, effective August 15, 2022.
