Dr. Carla Hayden, the Next Librarian of Congress?

President Obama nominated Dr. Carla Hayden to be our next Librarian of Congress. If the Senate consents she will be the first female Librarian of Congress, a post which hasn’t been filled by a professional trained librarian in many years.  Dr. Hayden’s nomination has been supported by more than 140 Libraries and Non-Profits. On April 20, she gave her opening statement to Congress, “Of all the titles I’ve had in my professional career I’m most proud to be called a librarian.” Watch the complete hearing here: http://cs.pn/240aL5p. The acting Librarian of Congress is David Mao, a lawyer and librarian by training who held the post Law Librarian of Congress.
