This may be a couple of weeks late (our new director started earlier this month), but with the start of the new semester, things have been a bit hectic and I’m just now getting caught up (my humblest apologies).
Join me in congratulating Dr. Pamela Louderback as she takes over the helm as Director of the Library on the Broken Arrow Campus.
Pamela is an Assistant Professor and has been with NSU Broken Arrow since its beginning in October of 2001.
Her personal and professional research interests include assisting students in the transition to college. She researches and writes in the areas of integrating technology into the curriculum, developing structured communication forms of distribution media through integrated library systems, leadership in higher education, social justice for indigenous peoples, and academic achievement and retention of American Indian college students.
Pamela has done a bit of international travel as well. In July of 2008, she had the opportunity to visit Tasmania to present research based on my dissertation topic – “Sociocultural factors to American Indian academic success in college” and presented her ongoing research on academic success/retention at the APA conference in Toronto during August 2009. She was the proud recipient of a UK Fulbright research scholarship in 2010 (Scholar in Governance and Public Policy 2011) to Queen’s University Belfast and was fortunate to have the opportunity to learn firsthand the rich history and heritage of the Irish, their Department of Education and it’s public policy, and the role it plays in language revitalization efforts. The next country she plans to visit is New Zealand to engage in further research for a book. The concept for the book she’s working on focuses on the destruction of indigenous cultural languages with a chapter devoted to a variety of cultures/places: Aboriginal/Australia, American Indian/U.S, First Nation/Canada, Irish/Northern Ireland, Welsh/Wales, Maori/New Zealand.
Congratulations Dr. Louderback and welcome to the corner office.

If you haven’t been by the library building lately (BALB), you may want to swing by to check out our new displays. We have a huge display case on each floor just outside the library (as you go toward the Liberal Arts building — BALA). In the downstairs display we have the “History of Technology at the NSU Libraries.” Come take a nostalgic trip down memory lane . . . do you remember using similar equipment? On the second floor, we have a display of “Travel Photography.” Included in this display are the photographs (from assorted destinations) of NSU’s Interim Executive Director, Paula Setton, as well as the photos of Kateri Louderback (from Ireland and the UK) Kateri is the daughter of Dr. Pamela Louderback, Assistant Professor and Information Services Librarian. These are some great pictures.
