The Marine Biological Library (MBL) has appointed Syracuse University School of Information Studies (iSchool) alumna Holly Miller as the director of the Marine Biological Library and Woods Holes Oceanographic Institution (MBLWHOI) Library and the associate director of the newly formed Center for Library and Informatics.

“I am excited to be a part of this dynamic and innovative institution,” Miller said. “The MBLWHOI Library and the new Center for Library and Informatics are on the cutting edge of scientific data and information access, archiving, and use.”

The MBLWHOI Library is internationally recognized as defining current trends and practices in marine information sciences and bioinformatics. The MBL and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) maintain a vital partnership in the day-to-day operation of the library, which continues to build one of the most unique print and electronic literature collections in the biological, biomedical, ecological, and oceanographic sciences.

Miller completed an M.S. in library and information science and a Certificate of Advanced Study in Digital Libraries online in 2009 while working for the MBL. She also holds a B.S. in chemistry and biology from Bloomsburg University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Wake Forest University.
