Dan BarkleyInformation Director Dan Barkley at the UNM General Library has been appointed chair of the Depository Library Council (DLC). This marks the first time an individual from New Mexico has held the post in DLC’s 30-year history.

The DLC consists of 15 individuals invited by the Public Printer of the United States to serve three-year rotating terms. Five members are selected annually from library, government and non-government communities. Members of Depository Library Council advise the Public Printer on matters relating to the Federal Depository Library Program.

“It is an honor to be selected by my peers. It demonstrates strong recognition of a lot of hard work in the profession. It is not only an honor for me, but also for UNM and the library,” Barkley said.

Wilson began his university press career in the early 1970s when he joined the Cambridge University Press editorial staff. In 1976 he became the editor-in-chief of the University of Oklahoma Press. He was named director of UNM Press in 1980 and during the next two decades also served as director of Syracuse University Press and the University Press of Colorado. In 2000, he returned to the UNM Press to reassume the directorship.

He has guided more than 1,500 books into print devoted to American Indians, such as “Navajo Language,” by Robert Young and William Morgan and “The Life and Art of Jerome Tiger” by Peggy Tiger and Molly Babcock.
