Yale University: "Library Restructures Staff"
From the Yale Daily News:
Library staff knew Yale would bring a new University librarian to campus this academic year, but some were surprised to find their own roles in the library changed.

Since August, the responsibilities of about a dozen librarians have increased, while another dozen now report to different managers, University librarian Susan Gibbons said.

The University library employs more than 500 staff.
