Elena S. Danielson has been appointed
Archivist of the Hoover Institution. The appointment of Danielson,
who joined the Hoover Institution in 1978, was announced by Hoover Director
John Raisian and Deputy Director Charles Palm. Her appointment
was effective September 1. The Hoover Institution Archives is today
one of the preeminent archival repositories for the study of social, political,
and economic change in modern time.
Danielson has held increasingly responsible positions in the Archives since she was hired in 1978, and served as Acting Archivist for the past year. She has published widely on archival topics in such journals at the American Archivist, the Slavic Review, and the Hoover Digest. She was elected to Phi Beta Kappa at the University of California, Berkeley, where she majored in German with minors in Slavic and history. She received a masters degree in library science from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Ph.D. in German Studies from Stanford University.
Over the years, she has received various honors including a Fulbright Fellowship, a Whiting Fellowship, and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. She is a member of the Society of American Archivists, and currently serves as chair of that organization's Ethics Committee.
There are openings at the Information Desk in Green Library Fall Quarter. Staffed by volunteers from all parts of SUL and located in the catalog area of Green Library, the Information Desk is a first line of help for students, faculty, staff and visitors using Green Library and SUL. The team of volunteers answers directional questions, questions about what materials the library owns, and basic questions about using Folio. The Desk is open 10-12, 1-5 Monday through Friday.
Training will be cheerfully provided
by yours truly, so don't let "not knowing how" keep you away. If you are
interested and commit one hour a week for at least a quarter, please contact
Liz Green at 5-1058 or emgreen@sulmail. Join us! It's a great experience!
