January 9th, 2020

Sue Ackermann has been appointed as the new Director of University of Nottingham Libraries.

Sue has been Acting Director of Libraries since February 2019 and has held a senior leadership role in libraries for the past five years. Prior to this she worked at a range of organisations, including Health Education England, University of Leicester, Department for Education, Royal College of Surgeons and Ofsted.

During her time at the University Sue has led on a number of areas for libraries; including Research and Learning Services, Strategy and Planning, improving staff and student engagement and overseeing the implementation of a new library management system.

Registrar Dr Paul Greatrix said: “Sue’s work in the department as acting Director and in her previous roles has been exemplary and I’m delighted she’s taking on the role permanently. Our libraries are a key element of staff and student life, and I look forward to seeing them go from strength to strength under Sue’s leadership.”

Sue said: “I’m absolutely delighted to take on the role of Director of UoN Libraries – it’s a real privilege to lead a department which is so central to so much of University life.

“The Library already has an excellent reputation, but we are ambitious to be the best we can be. I am fortunate to have a fantastically talented team of people in place already and I look forward to working with colleagues across the university as we continue to evolve our services to better meet the needs of students, academics and our Professional Services teams.”
