Bazirjian Appointed UNCG Librarian

GREENSBORO – Rosann Bazirjian, assistant dean for technical and access services at Pennsylvania State University Libraries, has been named university librarian at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Selected through a national search, she will begin Aug. 15 and report to Provost A. Edward Uprichard.

“Rosann has a record of successful experience at major research university libraries,” Uprichard said. “She is a leader in her field in the use of technology. The faculty, the staff of Jackson Library and the academic leadership of the university look forward to working with her.”

Bazirjian said she was attracted to UNCG by the university’s academic reputation and the library’s talented staff. She remains enthusiastic about her vocation after 24 years in the field.

“I like the changing nature of the profession and the cutting-edge technology we use to provide services and information to our users,” Bazirjian said. “Librarianship becomes more and more dynamic as we move beyond the four walls of the library to meet the needs of our users, wherever they may be.”

The author of numerous journal articles, she was assistant director of technical services at Florida State University from 1995 to 1999 and head of bibliographic services at Syracuse University from 1991 to 1995. She was head of acquisitions and collection development at University of West Florida from 1985 to 1990 and acquisitions librarian at Syracuse from 1980 to 1984.

Bazirjian earned a bachelor’s degree in history from City University of New York, a master’s degree in library science from Columbia University and a master’s degree in social science from Syracuse University.

Longtime University Librarian Doris Hulbert is retiring this summer after almost 24 years at UNCG.
