Moody replaces PSU’s last University Librarian, Helen Spalding, who retired in 2010. Lynn Chmelir and Adriene Lim each served a year in the position on an interim basis. Moody’s first day will be Aug. 27.

Before joining Boise State in 2006, Moody served in administrative positions in the libraries at the University of California, Santa Barbara; the University of Buffalo; Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York; and Iowa State University. She is the co-author with Jean L. Sears of three editions of the reference work “Using Government Information Sources.” She has a master’s degree in library science and a bachelor’s degree in teaching social studies, both from the University of Illinois.

Welcome, Marilyn!
