Bio

As head of cataloging, coordinator for technical services, and, finally, coordinator for Special Collections and Library Development, Darla Rushing played a major role in the development of library automation at Loyola and in the planning and building the J. Edgar & Louise S. Monroe Library. In addition, she helped usher Loyola’s Special Collections & Archives into its deservedly prominent place in the Monroe Library for the university. Rushing was the co-recipient of the highly competitive National Endowment for Humanities Challenge Grant and received numerous grants for library projects, which led to her position as the Monroe Library's first development officer.
