The Frick Art Reference Library announces the retirement of Patricia Barnett, Andrew W. Mellon Chief Librarian. Comments Director Anne L. Poulet, “During her thirteen years as Chief Librarian, Pat Barnett has been a champion of outreach and collaboration. As a result, the Frick Art Reference Library has strengthened its position as an innovative institution, one that colleagues both in the United States and Europe view as an exemplar of best practices in librarianship and new initiatives. I speak for The Frick Collection staff and Board of Trustees in commending Pat Barnett for her dynamic and transformative years of service, and we congratulate her for the long list of accomplishments during her stewardship at the Library.”
