Judith Nadler is Director of the University Library and University Librarian. An alumna of the University of Jerusalem, Israel, she held numerous positions in the Library prior to becoming Director in 1995. Among her positions, she continues to serve as chief selector for the Library’s Judaica Collections with special emphasis on modern Hebrew, Israel-related materials, and Yiddish.

Nationally and internationally known for her expertise as a cataloguer and bibliographer, Nadler has served on numerous committees and working groups, among them the Library of Congress’ Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control which has issued recommendations on ways U.S. library resources could be made more accessible to researchers in the 21st century.
