David S. Ferriero, the former Andrew W. Mellon Director of the New York Public Libraries and a leader in the field of research librarianship, was sworn in as the tenth Archivist of the United States at a small ceremony at the National Archives at College Park. Mr. Ferriero will move to Washington and assume his duties full-time in the very near future. At his swearing-in ceremony, Mr. Ferriero said, "I'm very excited about being here. I am looking forward to jumping in with both feet to work with the staff at the National Archives on the important issues that we face in a world increasingly dependent upon information and technology."
