HDS Appoints Laura Wood as Andover–Harvard's Librarian

The Harvard Divinity School (HDS) has appointed Laura C. Wood as librarian of the Andover–Harvard Theological Library, according to HDS Dean William A. Graham. Wood's appointment is effective on June 15.

Wood comes to Harvard from Emory University's Candler School of Theology, where she has worked at Pitts Theological Library since September 2000, as both periodicals librarian and technical services librarian.

"Through her dual responsibilities at Candler, Laura has clearly developed a balanced approach to library services that includes the enhancement of access to materials through innovative means," Graham said in announcing the appointment. "Her work with technology at Emory, and through the American Theological Library Association, will assist her in leading our library forward in this critical area and will make her an important contributor to Harvard's University Library Council as well."

Before arriving at Emory, Wood was head librarian of the Stockwell Cross Library at the University of Michigan, where she received a master's degree in information. She also has a master's degree in religion from Yale Divinity School and a BA from Mount Holyoke College. She expects to receive her MBA from Emory in May.
