The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to welcome Adriana P. Cuervo, the new Associate Director of the Institute of Jazz Studies (IJS). The Institute of Jazz Studies is the largest and most comprehensive library and archive of jazz and jazz-related materials in the world.

Adriana will oversee public services for IJS and serve as a liaison to the Rutgers-Newark Masters' Program in Jazz History and Research, and to related disciplines. She will develop and implement marketing and communications activities for the Institute and work to enhance the online presence of IJS. In consultation with other Rutgers  librarians and staff, she will identify and advance digital projects that use IJS collections. She will also develop public programming to engage multiple audiences in the work of IJS and assist in efforts to seek external funding.

Adriana previously served as Assistant Archivist for Music and Fine Arts at the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music, at the the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In that role she provided reference services for students, faculty, staff, and the general public; delivered instruction sessions; advised researchers and other visitors in the appropriate use of archival materials; created records for and oversaw preservation of music and artifact collections; and supervised and trained volunteers and student staff. She also served as the principal investigator for the National Digital Newspaper Project at the University of Illinois Library, a $530,000 NEH-funded project to preserve and digitize the historic newspaper heritage of Illinois in partnership with the Library of Congress.

Adriana has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music History, Cum Laude, from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia and a Master of Science in Library and Information Science degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Adriana can be reached at adriana.cuervo@rutgers.edu or 973-353-5595. Her office is located in the IJS office suite, in the John Cotton Dana Library on the Rutgers-Newark campus.
