Roderer Named Interim Sheridan Director,
Dean of Libraries

Nancy Roderer has been appointed interim director of the Sheridan Libraries and interim dean of university libraries at The Johns Hopkins University, beginning Sept. 1.

Roderer, currently director of the Johns Hopkins Welch Medical Library, will retain that role and serve in the interim positions until a successor is appointed for James G. Neal, who has accepted the position of vice president for information services and university librarian at Columbia University.

"Nancy brings an impressive breadth of experience to this important role," said Steven Knapp, provost of Johns Hopkins University. "Her continuing role as director of the Welch Medical Library will give her a valuable overview of library systems across the institutions. We are grateful for her willingness to step forward at this crucial transitional moment."

Regarded as an expert in integrated medical information systems, Roderer was named director of the Welch Medical Library in 1999. Before coming to Hopkins, she coordinated the National Library of Medicine's postgraduate training program for medical librarians. Prior to that, Roderer was director of the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at Yale University.

The Sheridan Libraries consist of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library and its collections at the John Work Garrett Library at Evergreen House, the George Peabody Library at Mount Vernon Place and the Albert D. Hutzler Reading Room in Gilman Hall. All told, the dean of university libraries oversees a collection of more than 3.3 million printed volumes, more than 20,000 periodicals and an extensive collection of electronic resources including databases, e-books and more than 3,000 full-text journals.
