By Laine Farley, CDL Interim Executive Director

Catherine Mitchell named Director of Publishing program

CDL is delighted to announce that as of October 13, Catherine Mitchell is the permanent Director of the Publishing program for CDL.  Catherine has held the position on an interim basis since November 2007.  During that time, she has led the group to develop a new services-oriented vision and to launch an ambitious redesign of the eScholarship interface.  She was also the project manager for the Mark Twain project which successfully launched last November.  Catherine’s dedication, deep understanding of scholarly communication, publishing issues, and professionalism are admired by all of us who work with her.  Please join me in congratulating Catherine on her new (old) job!
