WilliamJ. Studeh,associate dean of uni- versity libraries and director of regional campus libraries at Indiana University since 1973, has been appointed direc- tor of university librar- ies and professor of library science at Ohio State University, effec- tive February 1.

William J. Studer

He joins the Ohio State faculty after eight years at Indiana, when he was named director of regional campus libraries, a ti- tle he retained when he became associate dean of library ser- vices in 1973. Previous to that, Dr. Studer worked at the Library of Congress, first as a special intern and later as a reference librarian and senior bibliographer.

His undergraduate and graduate work was completed at Indiana where he received an A.B. in English, an M.A. in library science, and a Ph.D. in library and information science. He also studied at Stockholm University.

Dr. Studer has been active in ALA and served as ISAD’s liaison representative to the RASD Information Retrieval Committee, 1973- 1975. He also was a member of the board of directors of the Indiana Cooperative Library Services Authority, a member of the LARC Association President’s Advisory Committee, and president of the Indiana University Graduate Library School Alumni Association.

As director of the Ohio State University Libraries, Dr. Studer is responsible for a library collection that includes more than 1,500,000 books. Its staff of 88 professionals, 198 clerical support employees, and 122 student assistants provides library services for the nearly 43,000 full-time students who are enrolled in 14 major divisions of the university.

DR. Claude J. Johns, Jr.,former director of Air Force Academy Libraries, has been named director of libraries at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC).

The position has been designated as that of dean of library services, and his responsibility will be greatly expanded to include, not only the administration of the UNC’s library system, but participation in the establishment and implementation of institutional policies affecting the total educational program of the university. This move intends to underline the increased emphasis UNC’s administration is placing on library services.

Johns has been director of libraries at the USAF Academy since 1969. He joined the academy faculty in 1961 as an instructor in the Political Science Department and became chairman of instruction in that department in 1967.

He served from 1956 to 1961 as an air intelligence officer in the U.S. Air Force and has been a graduate research assistant at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Florida State University (FSU).

Johns earned a bachelor of science degree with an emphasis in secondary education and public administration from FSU, a master of arts degree in librarianship from the University of Denver, a master of science in public administration from FSU, and a doctor of philosophy degree in political science and public administration from the University of North Carolina.

He is a member of and office holder in various national and regional professional organizations. He has done research and authored or coauthored numerous works in political science and library science.
