Cornell's Sarah Thomas moves to Oxford

Cornell University Librarian Sarah Thomas has been appointed director of Oxford University's libraries. Her appointment begins in February of 2007. "Sarah Thomas has made extraordinary contributions to Cornell University, making our library one of the most forward-looking and service-oriented university libraries in the world," said Cornell Provost Biddy Martin.

She is the first woman and first non-British person to fill the most senior library post in the University of Oxford; in her new role, Dr Thomas will be the executive head of the Oxford University Library Services (OULS), which hold more than 11 million printed volumes in nearly 40 libraries including the Bodleian Library.
