As Director of Library Services, Nancy Olson’s proactive leadership aims to provide the resources, services, and instruction that students need for academic success and lifelong learning in God’s world. Under her leadership over more than 20 years, the Library was invited to join Illinois’ I-Share online catalog and received a state grant to digitize a unique collection of Stone-Campbell Movement hymnals from the 1800s. Olson was a 2015 recipient of the prestigious Emily Russell Award, presented by the Association of Christian Librarians “in recognition of her outstanding contribution to Christian librarianship and to the Association of Christian Librarians.” In addition to her proficiency in information science, she puts her deep commitment to missions into action through ongoing short-term service trips to Japan, England, Germany and Eastern Europe.
“It is exciting to see God at work in the lives of our students as they prepare to be Kingdom workers. It is a joy serving with them and encouraging them to grow into servant leaders committed to ministry.”Nancy Olson, Director of Library Services
