April 07, 2017

WASHINGTON — Anne Langley, Penn State University Libraries’ associate dean for Research, Collections and Scholarly Communications, has been named one of 34 Fellows of the 2017 Leading Change Institute, sponsored by the Council on Library and Information Resources and EDUCAUSE.

A weeklong residential seminar experience, the Leading Change Institute brings together a select group of librarians, information technologists and others in the information sector across the United States who explore higher education challenges and solutions. The 2017 Institute will be held June 11-16 in Washington, D.C.

“It is a great testament to Anne’s vision and leadership that she has been selected as an LCI Fellow,” Barbara I. Dewey, dean of University Libraries and Scholarly Communications, said. “As a participant myself during the institute’s inaugural cohort in 2000, I can attest to the rewarding personal value and professional benefit Fellows gain in meeting with their peers to examine emerging trends in the information and technology fields. Anne’s experiences from this transformative leadership summit also will reap great dividends for the University Libraries’ quest for greater innovation for Penn State.”

Langley provides leadership and strategic direction for the University Libraries’ liaison and content stewardship activities supporting the life cycle of scholarly production. She oversees subject liaison outreach to students and researchers, collection development, preservation, acquisitions, scholarly communications, special collections, copyright, and open access outreach. She came to Penn State in July 2015 from Princeton University Library as its director of scholarly communications and head librarian for the Science and Technology Libraries.

She has presented and written on a wide range of topics that have focused on collaboration, planning and assessment among other topics. Langley is active professionally and is a past chair for the Coalition for Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI) and president-elect of the advisory board for the University of Tennessee’s School of Information Science, where she earned a master of science degree in library and information sciences.
