The A.T. Still Memorial Library is pleased to welcome Maud Mundava, MLS, MBA, as Missouri campus library head librarian and assistant university library director.
Mundava previously served as the director of library services at Cleveland State Community College, where she oversaw the library’s daily operations, including acquisition, budgeting, and hiring of personnel. She strongly advocates promoting continuous improvement strategies that foster faculty/librarian collaborations, student engagement, and research.
Before this position, Mundava worked at various academic libraries, including the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; Atlanta University Center, Robert W. Woodruff Library; and the University of Zimbabwe. She is a former Fulbright scholar and graduate of SUNY Buffalo, New York, where she received her master of library science after completing a bachelor’s degree in history and a postgraduate diploma in organization and management at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Mundava holds an MBA from Mercer University.
Mundava was selected and completed the 2018-19 Association Research Libraries (ARL) Leadership program. She has presented at several conferences and published a book chapter and peer-reviewed articles on plagiarism, marketing approaches, and diversity issues in libraries. She is a member of the American Library Association and has been actively engaged in the Association of College and Research Libraries, where she served in committees and held co-chair positions.
Mundava is excited to join the ATSU family and be part of the founding institution of osteopathic healthcare. She looks forward to working closely with faculty and other campus-wide partners to embed library resources and services into the curricula. Her anticipated start date is Nov. 1, 2021.
