Beverly Pfeifer Lynch

Inducted Saturday, September 25, 2004


Beverly Lynch graduated from Moorhead High School in 1953 fourth in her class. She received her bachelor’s degree from North Dakota State University, which awarded her an honorary degree in 1980. She earned her master’s degree in Library Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and her doctorate from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

In 1972 she was appointed the Executive Secretary of the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association. During her four years with ACRL, Lynch directed the revisions of the Standards for College Libraries and Community College Libraries and the development of the first statement of Standards for University Libraries. She also proposed and designed the first national ACRL conference and directed a $500,000 project to enhance the leadership in the libraries serving the historically Black colleges and universities.

In 1977, Lynch was appointed university librarian and professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She developed the library into a major research library which was admitted to membership in the Association of Research Libraries in 1988. Her work at UIC is described in her book “The Academic Library in Transition.” Lynch has published five other books. The most recent is “Libri: Special Issue on Freedom of Expression,” which was published in 2000.

Lynch was appointed dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at UCLA in 1989. In that position she guided the revision of the master’s degree curriculum and restructured and strengthened the Ph.D. program. Lynch currently is a professor at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies and Director of the UCLA Senior Fellows Program.

Active in the American Library Association, Lynch has served in several capacities for the organization including a term as president in 1985-86. She currently is an elected member of the ALA Council, chair of the Board of Directors of the National Information Standards Organization, and secretary of the Board of Directors of the Rare Book School, University of Virginia.

Beverly is married to John A. Lynch. She lives in Encino, California.
