• The University of Wisconsin has announced the appointment of Esther Stineman to the new position of University of Wisconsin System librarian-at-large in women’s studies. The position was created at the recommendation of the system Women’s Studies Task Force and represents an experimental approach to resource sharing, development, and service in the system.

During the two-year pilot phase, the librarian-at-large will focus particularly on issues of undergraduate collection development and technical service to the university cluster: it is expected that, upon successful completion of the pilot phase, issues of resource development pertinent to research, graduate programming, and outreach programming will be added to the major concerns of the librarian-at-large.

Stineman is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati with bachelor’s degrees in English and education; she holds an M.A. in English from the University of Colorado-Boulder and an M.A. from the Graduate Library School, University of Chicago. She has held positions as a public high school teacher and as user services librarian and instructor at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. Her articles have appeared in Colorado Libraries and the University of Michigan Papers in Women’s Studies. She is currently at work on a biographic and bibliographic reference work on the subject of women in politics, to be published next year.

The librarian-at-large will be located in the Wisconsin Interlibrary Loan Service (WILS) office, though she will travel extensively in the state to determine needs and to consult with individuals interested in women’s studies collection development and service. Giving guidance to the position will be an advisory group of three librarians who are particularly knowledgeable about women’s studies resource development issues, a women’s studies coordinator, and a library director.

Stineman may be contacted at the University of Wisconsin, 464 Memorial Library, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison WI 53706; (608) 263-5754.
