Bernard A. Barton Jr. has been named the Chief Information Officer of the Librarian of Congress.
Here's an excerpt from the announcement:
Barton most recently served as chief information officer and deputy administrator of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), the largest central resource for Department of Defense and government-funded research, development, technical and engineering information. . . .
Barton joined DTIC in 2009 as deputy director of Information Technology Services. In 2010, he was named acting director of Information Technology Services and, in 2012, its director. Later that year, Barton was appointed DTIC's deputy administrator and chief information officer.
In that role, Barton managed the daily operations of DTIC; developed institutional strategies; directed the planning and implementation of long-range information-technology initiatives; led the development of unique, state-of-the-art systems and technology applications; established DTIC as the Department of Defense science and technology community "cloud," providing nearly real-time communication and collaboration infrastructure; and implemented Web 2.0 technologies within the institution, providing rapid prototyping of relevant and secure products and early adoption of new or improved technologies.
