The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) is pleased to announce Courtney Taulbee will serve as our Visiting Program Officer to explore ways ASERL members can expand and improve resource sharing within the consortium.
“Courtney brings both practical knowledge and a spirit of curiosity that will help ASERL excel in guiding new program exploration and development,” said John Burger, Executive Director of ASERL. “We are lucky to have a wealth of excellent leaders in ASERL’s resource sharing community, and were impressed by all the applicants. I am looking forward to seeing what develops from this exploration.”
As Head of Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery at the University of Kentucky Libraries, Courtney brings extensive subject matter knowledge and a significant expertise in collaborative projects to the role. Her professional service credits include leadership of the ELUNA RapidILL Working Group and membership in the Reference and User Services Association’s Sharing and Transforming Access to Resources Section (RUSA-STARS) division of the American Library Association.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to work with my ASERL colleagues in exploring how resource sharing can better serve all our patrons. ASERL consists of many institutions with fantastic library services, and I look forward to collaborating with so many talented experts in further developing resource sharing within our consortium,” Taulbee said.
Ms. Taulbee will begin her one-year tenure as VPO in early September while maintaining her role at the University of Kentucky Libraries.
