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

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.
