Wilmington native Lucy Holman has been named university librarian, according to a recent announcement by officials with the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

Holman begins her appointment at UNCW on July 2, according to the news release. She will report to the senior associate provost and provide collaborative leadership to ensure exemplary library services for both the campus and community, while representing Randall Library at the local, regional, state and national levels.

“I have observed UNCW’s growth in size and reputation and am honored to serve as the leader of Randall Library,” Holman said in the release. “I’m looking forward to working with departments across campus, partners in the community and other libraries in the region to ensure the growth of a vibrant 21st-century library at UNCW.”

Holman began her career as residence hall director/area coordinator at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, then came to UNCW in a similar role, officials said in the release. She returns to the UNCW campus after most recently serving as dean of Langsdale Library at the University of Baltimore.

Holman is also a faculty member in UB’s College of Arts and Sciences and director of the certificate in library technologies program.

As dean of UB’s Langsdale Library, Holman worked to launch new library services, innovative models and responsive resources in alignment with the university’s academic and overall strategic plans. Under her leadership, the library incorporated trends in social media and mobile use to provide critical services, resources and spaces for the academic success of today’s students, officials said in the release.

She also served as assistant resident dean at Revelle College at the University of California, San Diego before being named assistant director of residence life at the N.C. School of the Arts. She started at UB’s Langsdale Library as a reference librarian and held positions at UMCB and Harford Community College.

After eight years as library director at UB, she was named library dean in 2016, officials said.

She holds a doctor of communications design from the University of Baltimore, a master’s in library science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a master’s of human development and learning from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and a bachelor’s in journalism and history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
