University of Washington: “Susan Hildreth Leaves Her Mark by Bringing Together Faculty, Students, Libraries”
From the University of Washington iSchool:
Susan Hildreth has accomplished a lot in her career. In more than three decades as a librarian, she’s had stints as city librarian in San Francisco and Seattle, and state librarian in California. She managed a $250 million budget as director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services from 2011-15. But until she became the Information School’s first Distinguished Practitioner in Residence, she had never done an academic research project.
A research project was a key ingredient in the job, though, and part of what attracted Hildreth to take on the role. Funded by a 10-year, $1.4 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Distinguished Practitioner in Residence is bringing a succession of leading professionals to the iSchool to offer a practical perspective on scholarly pursuits in library and information science.
