Since its founding in 1973, use of oral histories in the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History has been exceptionally high. During the last several years, digital access to the Nunn Center Collection has increased that use by researchers world-wide exponentially.
To meet the growing demand for access, senior UK librarian Judy Sackett is joining the Nunn Center to assume primary responsibility for reference and access to the collection of more than 9,000 oral history interviews. Judy will also assist with accessioning and special projects.
Judy will continue her leadership in UK Libraries diversity initiatives including her coordination of the successful Association of Research Libraries Career Enhancement Program (CEP). The ARL CEP is a fellowship program that recruits library and information science (MLIS) students from traditionally underrepresented racial and ethnic groups into careers in research and academic libraries.
