U.VA. Library Names Vicki Coleman As Director of Clemons Library

September 5, 2000 -- The University of Virginia Library has named Vicki Coleman as the new director of Clemons, the undergraduate library. She replaces Jim Self, who left in February to become the director of the University Libraryıs Management Information Services (MIS).

Coleman comes to U.Va. from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, where she had been director of the Spahr Engineering Library since 1998. She was previously head of electronic reference services at Texas A&M University.

"We feel most fortunate to have attracted someone of Vicki's talent and experience," said Diane Walker, associate University librarian and head of the search committee for the position. "She will undoubtedly continue the tradition of user-focused service and provide strong leadership for Clemons. We're thrilled that she's here."

Coleman said that she looks forward to the opportunity to work closely with undergraduate students and "with a staff that has such obvious pride in their jobs." She plans to seek suggestions from students about what services the library could better provide.

She received her B.S. in mechanical engineering from North Carolina A&T State University in 1984 and Masters of Information and Library Studies from the University of Michigan in 1993.

Having grown up in Maryland, and with her parents now living in southern Virginia, Coleman said that moving to Charlottesville "feels like coming home again."

Coleman began her U.Va. job today.
