Jane Bryan to Princeton
After some thirty years of outstanding work and real achievements, Jane Bryan, Head of Reference Services at the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library, bids Penn farewell to become Director for Public Services and Collection Development at Princeton. A gifted teacher, a first-rate reference librarian, a highly respected contributor to Penn's digital library, a patient and intelligent manager, Jane will be sorely missed and impossible to replace. She has cultivated a staff recognized for service excellence, helped the Library capitalize on new technologies, and improved our understanding of the role that libraries will play in the academy of the future. Jane leaves behind friends and colleagues who have a better appreciation of librarianship for having worked with her. And while we're saddened by her departure, we're gratified to know she's nearby, continuing to influence the way we work in a digital age.
--Paul H. Mosher, Vice Provost and Director of Libraries
