Mary Page Named University Librarian

Following a national search, Mary Page has been named the University librarian. She brings to WCU more than 30 years of senior-level experience and leadership in library administration, research, and services in a variety of public higher education settings. She will begin on Aug. 7, 2017.

An expert in special collections and digital initiatives, Page was most recently a member of the senior leadership team at the University of Central Florida (UCF) where she directed acquisitions, collection development, cataloging, electronic resource management, and interlibrary loan. Having held the position since 2010, Page also represented UCF in national, regional, and statewide consortia on collections and technical service issues, including FLVC (Florida’s public colleges and universities consortium), the Association for Southeastern Research Libraries, and the Center for Research Libraries.

Prior to UCF, Page worked at the University of California, Davis Library, and Rutgers University Libraries. In addition, she is an active member of her professional community, having served as president of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services, a division of the American Library Association, as well as the North American Serials Interest Group. She also serves on library advisory boards of major publishers and has presented nationally on topics such as leadership in libraries, open education resources, and consortia programs for libraries.

Page received a master of library science from Rutgers University, and a bachelor of arts in English literature from Douglass College, Rutgers University.
