Johanna Hansson new Deputy Library Director

2 april 2019

As of April 1, Johanna Hansson takes up the new position of Deputy Library Director at Uppsala University Library.

-I look forward to developing, and developing in, this new role, says Johanna Hansson.

As Deputy Library Director, Johanna will have staff liability for the library’s Heads of Divisions and, as such, a central role in the library’s daily work and internal activities.

Johanna Hansson has previously been a city librarian in Uppsala and for the last 18 months she has worked as Head of Division and project manager at Almedalsbiblioteket, part of Uppsala University Library, so she already has good insight into the organisation. Johanna is also chairman of the Swedish Library Association.

- Johanna has a broad experience of libraries, leadership and change management, says Library Director Lars Burman. This will be much appreciated at the University Library, she is warmly welcomed.
