I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Rachel Frick as the  
next senior program officer for DLF. Appended is the press release  
from CLIR. I look forward to our continued collaboration as DLF  
strengthens and evolves.

Rachel Frick has been named senior program officer of CLIR's Digital  
Library Federation (DLF). Frick comes to CLIR from the Institute for  
Museum and Library Services (IMLS), where she was senior program  
officer for the National Leadership Grants Program for Libraries. She  
will assume her new position on May 21.

In announcing the appointment, CLIR President Chuck Henry said, "All  
of us involved with the DLF search process are delighted in Rachel's  
appointment. She brings acumen, energy, and a rare depth of knowledge  
to this position. She possesses a strong strategic sensibility as well  
as a keen understanding of the needs and expectations of the DLF  
constituency that will help guide, evolve, and expand the organization  
in the coming years."

Prior to joining IMLS, Frick was head of bibliographic access and  
digital services at the University of Richmond. During her tenure she  
was selected to participate in the Frye Leadership Institute. Frick  
has also served as assistant acquisitions head and serials librarian  
at Virginia Commonwealth University, and as a sales manager for the  
Faxon Company. She holds an MSLS degree from the University of North  
Carolina at Chapel Hill and a BA in English literature from Guilford  

"As a strong believer in the value the DLF brings to its member  
organizations, and ultimately the broader library community, I see an  
amazing opportunity for the DLF to build upon its past achievements  
and expand its potential for innovative leadership," said Frick.
