Kristin D. Vogel has been named the new director of the library at St. Norbert College, effective July 1, 2011.

"Kristin has a deep appreciation for the role of the library at faith-based, liberal arts institutions and is extensively involved in her profession both nationally and internationally," said Jeffrey Frick, dean of the college and academic vice president.

Vogel currently serves as librarian and associate professor at Saint Louis University. She has previously held positions at Illinois Wesleyan University and Alma College. Kristin has an undergraduate degree in Peace and Global Studies from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, and a master's degree from Indiana University's School of Library and Information Science with concentrations in academic libraries, technology, and reference and instruction.

"The impressive Miriam B. and James J. Mulva Library, along with the key services provided by its dedicated personnel, demonstrate meaningful library contributions to the lives of St. Norbert College students," said Vogel. "I am very excited for the opportunity to join the St. Norbert College community and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead."

Vogel has been a member of the American Library Association since 1990.
