Following the retirement of George Frizzell, who served as Head of Special Collections at Western Carolina University for 34 years, Hunter Library’s departments have undergone reorganization. Elizabeth Skene, formerly the Digital Initiatives Librarian, is overseeing the merger of the Digital Initiatives Unit and Special Collections into a new Special and Digital Collections Unit. As Special and Digital Collections Librarian, Skene will further integrate and streamline the library’s digital collections and Special Collections services, while continuing to promote Open Access and data management. Before coming to WCU in 2014, Skene was the Curator of Collections at the Arab American National Museum and holds an MSI from the University of Michigan.
