Washington University Libraries recently appointed two people as associate university librarians.
Nadia Ghasedi has served as the associate university librarian for Special Collections since March. She has worked at the university for nine years, primarily with the libraries’ Film & Media Archive.
She has developed and taught workshops on film identification and care for local archivists, students and professional organizations. She is leading the project to digitize the “Eyes on the Prize” documentary interviews.
Ghasedi oversees these areas: Rare Books, Modern Literature, University Archives, Film & Media Archive, Douglas B. Dowd Modern Graphic History Library, Local History and Popular American Arts.
Jackie Lorrainne, who has been manager for payroll and human resources at Washington University Libraries, was promoted to associate university librarian this month. Her responsibilities include budget and finances, human resources, diversity initiatives, building operations, space planning and communications.
Lorrainne joined the university eight years ago in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences in Arts & Sciences. She began working at the libraries in 2013.
