The University Library is pleased to announce the appointment of Julie Rudder as Repository Librarian, effective Sept. 30, 2015.

In this position, Julie will manage the day-to-day operations and the continued development of the Carolina Digital Repository (CDR). The CDR offers long-term access and safekeeping for the scholarly works, datasets, research materials, and records that members of the UNC community produce through their research efforts. It will be a cornerstone of the open access policy that UNC faculty adopted in April 2015.

As repository librarian, Julie will ensure that new materials are appropriately added to the CDR and will coordinate with campus stakeholders and partners. She will provide direct support, advice, and training to the University’s faculty, staff, and students who wish to deposit materials, and she will collaborate with the Library’s application team to design and implement new features for the repository.

Prior to this appointment, Julie was the digital initiatives project manager for digital collections at the Northwestern University Library in Evanston, Illinois, where she also served as digital collections outreach and training specialist. She has held additional positions with Northwestern’s department of art history and department of art theory and practice.

Julie holds a B.A. in psychology from UNC, a B.F.A. in sculpture from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and an M.F.A. from Northwestern University.
