Former HXer Takes the Bate(s)

Bates President Clayton Spencer announced today that Katie L. Vale, director of digital learning at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, will become vice president for information and library services and librarian at Bates effective Sept. 1, 2015.

Vale played a key role in the planning and launching of the Harvard Initiative on Learning and Teaching and HarvardX, and served on numerous committees focused on the work of the libraries, including the planning group that led a major reorganization and new strategic direction for the Harvard Library.
