H. Julene Butler named university librarian at BYU

Brigham Young University has announced the appointment of H. Julene Butler as university librarian at the Harold B. Lee Library, replacing Randy J. Olsen, who recently 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.

With Butler’s appointment, two additional changes in the leadership of the Lee Library were announced. Scott Duval, who has been the assistant librarian for L. Tom Perry Special Collections, has been named as associate university librarian. Duval will retain administrative responsibility for Special Collections and will assume additional duties dealing with development. Jeff Belliston has been named assistant university librarian for Scholarly Communication, Assessment and Personnel.

Butler had been serving as associate university librarian at the Lee Library when she was named this fall as the interim university librarian. She has served the Lee Library administratively as chair of the General Reference Department and assistant university librarian for Public Services.

“Julene’s extensive skills and experience have positioned her well to fill this assignment in the Harold B. Lee Library,” said Academic Vice President John S. Tanner. “She will provide continuity for several key initiatives currently underway. We are very fortunate to have Julene be able to step into this important role at the university.”

Butler received her bachelor’s degree in English and her master’s degree in library science from BYU, and her doctoral degree in communication, information and library studies from Rutgers University.
