Thomas (Tom) Rosko was appointed University Librarian in March 2019. Before arriving at NPS, Rosko was at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he was Head, Institute Archives & Special Collections at the MIT Libraries from 2003 to 2019. Prior to MIT, he held archives and library positions at the University of Kentucky, New York University/The New-York Historical Society, and Princeton University. He received an M.L.S. from Rutgers University and a B.A. in history from Bucknell University.

While at MIT, Rosko improved outreach to the community, increasing student and faculty engagement culminating in several experiential classes utilizing the archives and special collections resources; established new professional processes and guidelines; instituted the first automated archival collection management system; worked to expand the institutional repository and open access to information; shifted collection development and processing to focus more on underrepresented groups, including the Women@MIT archival initiative; and increased resources for digital archives and preservation, including the establishment of a digital forensics lab and web-archiving program.

Rosko has presented on a variety of information topics including digital archives, institutional repositories, digital preservation and strategies for digital information life-cycle management. He is currently Secretary of the Board of Trustees of LYRASIS and a member of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) Education Committee. He has been a member of the Advisory Board of the American Institute of Physics, Center for the History of Physics and a reviewer for NEH and NHPRC grant programs. He was a member of SAA’s Digital Archives Specialist subcommittee and developed and teaches SAA’s Digital Archives and Libraries course. He is also a CLIR/EDUCAUSE Leading Change Institute Fellow (2017).
