Steven Mandeville-Gamble Named University Librarian

Steven Mandeville-GambleSteven Mandeville-Gamble is UCR’s ninth University Librarian, replacing Dr. Ruth M. Jackson. Jackson, who has held the position of University Librarian since 2002, has retired. Her tenure ended on February 28th, and Mandeville-Gamble begins his on March 1st.

Mandeville-Gamble comes from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where he has been the Associate University Librarian since 2007. In that role, he worked closely with development officials to bring in over $23 million in contributions and endowments that helped support projects like the Churchill Library and Center and the Teamsters Labor History Research Center — both of which were projects that resulted in endowing faculty positions.

Prior to serving as the Associate University Librarian, Mandeville-Gamble held positions in the area of special collections at George Washington University, North Carolina State University, and Stanford University. Throughout his career, he has effectively advanced diversity, dating back to his work as the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund project archivist at Stanford University two decades ago. He holds a masters in library and information studies from UC Berkeley, a M.A. in anthropology from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and a B.A. in anthropology from Stanford University. According to Dallas Rabenstein, executive vice chancellor and provost, "Steven has an impressive vision for the future of UCR's library and has a dynamic leadership style and acumen as seen through his vision seminar and his other meetings during his campus visit."
