MALCOLM TAYLOR APPOINTED LIBRARY DIRECTOR

The English Folk Dance and Song Society is pleased to announce that Malcolm Taylor, the Librarian of the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library, has been promoted to the new post of Library Director.

The new post of Library Director is intended to emphasise the more strategic aspects of Malcolm¹s role, with more focus on external networking and profile-raising for the Library and the EFDSS. Nevertheless, Malcolm will still maintain a hands-on role within the Library ­ facilitating research, answering queries and encouraging new and existing users of the Library.

Judith Hanson, a trustee of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, said, ³The aim behind this promotion is to recognise the importance of the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library ­ and its staff ­ within the future focus of the work of the EFDSS².

Malcolm Taylor has been employed in the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library since 1979 ­ first as assistant librarian and, from 1981 as Librarian. In 2002 his contribution to music librarianship was recognised in the award of an OBE in the New Year Honours. In 2005 he received the EFDSS¹s Gold Badge for his significant contribution to the work of the Society.

Over the years, Malcolm has been responsible for vastly improving the
profile, credibility and authority of the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library.

Well done Malcolm......

Great stuff. To a considerable extent, the library is the EFDSS. It is the repository , where we go to find stuff. And Malcolm, I am very sure, is the boy for the job.

Excellent news! It would appear that EFDSS are recognising and using the fact that the Library is the most important part of its existence - at the moment anyway. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Malcolm has always been unfailingly helpful whenever we've had contact with him. Hopefully, this will give him more freedom to work without having to refer everything back to his superiors, and does it mean he'll get a significant rise in salary as well?
