Dr. Suzanne Schadl, Chief of the Hispanic Division at the Library of Congress
Suzanne M. Schadl is Chief of the Hispanic Division at the Library of Congress. In that role she formulates the vision, establishes the mission and goals, and supports the staff, who apply language, metadata, and coordinated subject expertise to building collections and fostering learning with resources from and about the Caribbean, Latin America, Spain, Portugal, and heritage populations outside of these regions. The Hispanic division coordinates and edits the Handbook of Latin American Studies, curates the PALABRA Archive, produces La Biblioteca Podcast and conducts reference consultations and outreach, while promoting additional initiatives at the Library of Congress such as the current Law and By the People, Herencia Campaign.
Prior to working at the Library of Congress, Schadl was curator of the Latin American collections at the University of New Mexico (2008-2018), director of the Gerald and Betty Ford Library at The Bosque School (2004-2008), assistant professor of history at Roanoke College (2002-2004) and lecturer in history at the University of Texas in Austin (1999). She holds a doctorate in Latin American Studies from the University of New Mexico and she is active in the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials. Schadl’s interest in digital librarianship ranges from capturing and sharing Latin American tweets and translating electronic metadata to engaging diverse communities through linked resources.
In library management, as in curating and teaching, Schadl works to facilitate networks and learning. Her collaborative publications include a number of journal articles and two books, Scholarship in the Sandbox: Academic Libraries as Laboratories, Forums and Archives for Student Work (2018) and Getting Up for the People: The Visual Revolution of ASAR-Oaxaca (2014). Each incorporate student authors and Schadl counts herself fortunate for the connections for the opportunities she has to work with many people of different collections and projects.
