Hallie Golden | September 8, 2015

After three years of short-term IT leadership, the Library of Congress has named a permanent chief information officer to manage IT operations at one of the world’s largest libraries.

Bernard A. Barton Jr.’s first day as CIO was Tuesday. In a statement announcing the new hire, Librarian of Congress James H. Billington said Barton “brings to the Library of Congress the knowledge, expertise and leadership skills crucial to the institution’s mission of serving Congress and the American people in an age of rapidly evolving information technology.”
