No 7

The University of Leicester has recently appointed Christine Fyfe to the post of University Librarian.

Ms Fyfe came to Leicester from the University of Warwick, where she was Deputy Librarian, and took up her new post in October 2002.

She is currently Chair of the UK Serials Group and is a member of the Executive Committee of the COUNTER Usage Statistics Project. Her professional interests include the management of the hybrid library combining electronic and print resources, library collaboration and service developments to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse user base, resulting from the University of Leicester’s highly successful campaign towards widening access to higher education.

Christine Fyfe commented:  “I am delighted to be joining the University of Leicester at this exciting time. The major extension to the Library building included in the University’s £300 million development plan provides a focus for developing our collections and services in the digital age to meet the needs of a vibrant academic community.”
