California Digital Library: Ivy Anderson to Retire From UC in June 2021

From a CDLINFO Post by Guenter Waibel, Executive Director of the California Digital Library:

It’s with excitement about a new adventure for a dear colleague – and some anticipatory grief – that I share with you news of an upcoming CDL transition: Ivy Anderson, CDL’s Collection Development & Management Director/Associate Executive Director, will be retiring from the University in June 2021.


Preparation for Ivy’s June 2021 departure is well underway. Acknowledging the importance of the position to the UC Libraries and to CDL, we’ve petitioned and received Office of the President approval to begin early recruitment, starting November 2020. Our search will be nationwide and led by an executive search firm. The search and hiring committees will include campus representation, and our goal is to fill the position before July 2021.

Our search will embody our belief that by proactively promoting and embracing diversity in the ideas with which we engage, the collections we build, and the leadership we demonstrate, we reflect UC’s role in California, the nation, and the world. CDL’s commitment to sustainable open scholarship, and our commitment to the role of the UC Libraries in expanding the University’s capacity for innovation, knowledge creation and research breakthroughs, is unwavering, as is my personal commitment to these issues as CDL’s Executive Director.
