After a national search, OSU Libraries has hired Terry Reese, Jr as the
new holder of the Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library Services.

and application of new metadata and digitization standards to digital
collections.  His MarcEdit program has been adopted by libraries in the
United States, in Australia, in France and in Pakistan.  More recently
he has, with former Gray Chair holder, Jeremy Frumkin, developed
LibraryFind, an open source resource discovery tool, used by libraries
in the United States and Europe.  Terry is the author of numerous
articles, he has presented widely, and he is the co-author of the book,
Building Digital Libraries: A How-to-do-it Manual. He is an adjunct
professor with the Emporia University School of Information. 

The Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library Services is an endowed

delivery of information to the students, faculty, staff and other
constituents of Oregon State University with the goal of moving Oregon
State University Libraries to the forefront as an information provider;
(2)	Anticipate trends in technology relevant to Library Services
(3)	Develop and implement a strategy for making print and digitized
information more easily accessible to users of the Oregon State
University Libraries;
