On January 22, Katie Foran-Mulcahy started work as head of the College of Education, Criminal Justice and Human Services (CECH) Library.
Katie is not new to the university. She began her tenure at UC Clermont in 2010 as a beginning librarian, assuming the position of interim library director in 2014. Since then, she has focused on strategic planning and data-driven, student-centered facilities projects. Katie was appointed as library director in 2015, and awarded tenure and promotion to the rank of associate senior librarian in 2016.
“Katie’s background is an excellent fit for serving the needs of the CECH community and contributing to the University of Cincinnati Libraries’ strategic priorities,” said Brad Warren, associate dean of public services. “Her professional interests and publications revolve around librarian-faculty collaboration, teaching and instructional technology.”
Katie holds a Master of Science in Library Science and a BA in education from the University of Kentucky. She has a strong publication, presentation and teaching background in her various positions at UC Clermont where she made tremendous and significant accomplishments in improving the facilities, collections and services of the UC Clermont College Library. Katie also has relevant experience serving children and teens in her previous work in public libraries and as an instructional services librarian at Berea College.
“I am tremendously excited to contribute to the dynamic strategic direction of UC Libraries and to the vibrant CECH community, supporting their diverse student, faculty and program needs,” said Katie.
Welcome, Katie, in your new role as the head of the CECH Library!
