North Lake Tahoe Bonanza: Elizabeth "Betts" Markle was chosen from a competitive pool of candidates as Sierra Nevada College’s new director of library and information resources, announced Ray Ryan, provost and vice president of academic affairs.
Markle brings to Sierra Nevada College a background that includes over 12 years as an academic library director. Her experience includes over 10 years with DeVry University, both in suburban Chicago and the Atlanta area. Most recently she has served as library director at Argosy University in Atlanta, where as an adjunct faculty she taught several doctoral level courses in education and business.
"We are pleased indeed that Dr. Markle is joining SNC. Her experience and academic preparation will help SNC leverage the Prim Library facilities, which are among the best in the region," Ryan said.
Markle, who with her husband is excited about relocating to the Tahoe Basin, is looking forward to working with SNC’s student body, staff and faculty, as well as being geographically less distant from her son, who lives near Murphys, Calif. She holds a B.A. degree from National Louis University; an M.L.S. from Rosary College (now Dominican University); and a Ph.D. from Colorado State University.
