Carl Lagoze of the University of Michigan's School of Information is joining the ICPSR Council. He will replace Susan Cutter of the University of South Carolina, who is stepping down because of other commitments. He will serve the remainder of Professor Cutter?s term on the Council, which runs through 2015.
Professor Lagoze has been a leader in research on digital libraries and interoperability in information systems.
