In the News: Helen Shenton Leaving Harvard Library | LJ INFOdocket

Since her recruitment to Harvard in 2010 from the British Library, Helen has played a key role in steering the Harvard Library through a complex and challenging transition, working to bring together more than 70 libraries across two campuses and ten schools in a new governance, funding and organizational model. Helen created a multi-disciplinary senior team, recruiting members from major institutions across the US. Together, they designed and created new services in Access Services, Information and Technical Services, Preservation, Conservation and Digital Imaging that took effect on August 1, 2012, when about half the 900+ strong library staff moved into the new organization. Most recently, Helen steered the foundational Collection and Content Development Strategy with the affinity group heads through to approval by the Harvard Library Board.
