Deborah Jackson Weiss has been named senior project director for the Library Implementation Work Group. In that role, she will guide the panel putting in place the recommendations made last month by the Library Task Force. Weiss will work closely with the group’s chair, David Lamberth, professor of philosophy and theology at Harvard Divinity School, on financial planning and administrative structures at the libraries.
Before coming to Harvard, Weiss was a partner at Choate, Hall & Stewart and Ropes & Gray, where she concentrated on tax and employee-benefit matters. She is Romance languages cataloger at Harvard Law School. Weiss holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Bryn Mawr College, an M.A. in history from Case Western Reserve University, a J.D. from the Boston University School of Law, and an M.S. from Simmons College.
