The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has appointed Judy F. Ruttenberg as Program Director for Transforming Research Libraries (TRL). Ruttenberg is currently Program Officer for Collections at the Triangle Research Libraries Network (TRLN), a collaborative organization of Duke University, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She will assume her role with ARL on November 1, 2011.
At TRLN since 2005, Ruttenberg has managed inter-institutional task groups to explore and solve some of the complex issues facing ARL libraries today, including the sharing, retention, and storage of print materials; collaborative collection development, and the opportunities and constraints of e-resources relative to print; and collaborative large-scale digitization. She has also organized seminars and symposia for TRLN libraries staff on these topics and co-coordinated strategic planning retreats for TRLN library directors. Ruttenberg has seen TRLN’s successes in these areas change institutional culture and transform skeptics into enthusiastic champions of cooperation.
Prior to her tenure at TRLN, Ruttenberg served as a librarian at several academic, research, and special libraries, including the University of California, Irvine, and the National Agricultural Library. Ruttenberg has been recognized throughout her career for providing leadership and building strong relationships among all levels of library staff.
Ruttenberg received her MLS degree from the University of Maryland-College Park in 1996. She also has degrees from the University of Massachusetts and the University of Michigan.
