New GLAM Registrar and Chief Operating Officer appointed

We are delighted to announce that Dr Lindsay Rudge will take up the role of Divisional Registrar and Chief Operating Officer for the Gardens, Libraries & Museums from 1 February 2024.  

Lindsay is currently Interim Chief Operating Officer at the Bodleian Libraries, so is already very familiar with the GLAM Division.  Prior to this she spent five years as Head of Education Policy and Planning in the Social Sciences Division where she was responsible for leading planning and policy across this very large division of 15 schools and departments.
