Diane Frankel announced (February 18, 1999) that she will be
stepping down as Director of the Institute of Museum and Library
Services at the end of March 1999.  Originally appointed by
President William Clinton to be the Director of the Institute of
Museum Services, Frankel led the agency through its transition to
include federal library as well as museum programs. ...

Until the President nominates and the Senate confirms a new
director, an acting director will administer the day-to-day
operations of the agency. The Museum and Library Services Act (P.L.
104-208) provides that the Presidentially appointed Senate confirmed
director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services shall
rotate between an individual with library and information science
expertise and an individual with museum service expertise.  The next
Presidential appointee to be Director of the Institute of Museum and
Library Services will have expertise in library and information
services and will be appointed for a four year term.
