BYU's Randy J. Olsen named Director of Libraries for LDS Church

Randy J. Olsen, University Librarian at Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library, has accepted the position of Director of Libraries in the Church History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City beginning Jan. 4, 2010.

Julene Butler, Associate University Librarian, has accepted the assignment to serve as Interim University Librarian until a new University Librarian is identified and begins service.

Olsen joined the Lee Library as a German cataloguer in 1972 and has spent his entire career at BYU. He was appointed University Librarian in 2002.

"The university has benefitted tremendously from Randy’s energetic advocacy and leadership of a first-rate academic library," said Academic Vice President John S. Tanner, who noted that a search will be launched as soon as possible for Olsen’s replacement.
