UI librarian elected to research libraries committee

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Sheila D. Creth, university librarian at the University of Iowa, has been elected vice chair of the executive committee of the Center for Research Libraries. The center is a membership consortium of academic and research libraries in North America and operates a cooperative collection development program for more than 100 institutions.

Creth was elected to the institution's board in 1996. Comprised of faculty, academic officers and library directors, the board has responsibility for oversight of the center, including financial planning, membership growth and establishing priorities for new programs.

In addition, Creth serves on the board of the Coalition for Networked Information and recently completed service on the board of EDUCOM, both national organizations in higher education.
