Today, the United States Senate confirmed Dr. Carla Hayden as the next Librarian of Congress. President Obama nominated Dr. Hayden to the position last February.
The following can be attributed to Ryan Clough, General Counsel at Public Knowledge:
“We congratulate Dr. Carla Hayden on becoming the fourteenth Librarian of Congress and applaud the Senate for confirming her. Dr. Hayden is well positioned to restore the Library of Congress as a leading intellectual and cultural institution, and to advance the dissemination of knowledge to the benefit of all Americans. We look forward to assisting Dr. Hayden in fulfilling this mission.”
