Bodleian expands team as part of publishing push

<p>The Bodleian Library has created two new roles as part of its plans to expand its publishing programme, which will focus on trade and scholarly titles based on the nine million titles in its archives. </p><p>Su Wheeler has joined the library in the role of marketing and sales coordinator. She worked previously at Speechmark Publishing and Cambridge University Press. Caroline Brooke Johnson joins as editor, having come from the British Museum. </p><p>Deborah Susman has been promoted to managing editor and is in charge of the day-to-day management of the programme. </p><p>Dr Samuel Fanous, head of publishing, said: &quot;The Bodleian Library is one of the world&rsquo;s great repositories of knowledge. For a publisher, its resources are almost inexhaustible. This expansion gives us the opportunity to hunt out gems in the collections and refashion them for a new audience. </p><p>&quot;We are very excited about the future and look forward to expanding our sales and our publishing list as well as securing increasing international distribution for our books.&quot;</p><p>The appointments coincide with a move to new offices at the Osney Mead site in Oxford. Representation and distribution remain the same with Yale and Turpin respectively for the UK and Europe, and Chicago University Press for North America and Canada. </p>
