Anne M. Buck, 63, who had been university librarian of Caltech since 1995, died April 2 in Pasadena of cancer, said her son, Stephen.
Born Anne Davis in Birmingham, Ala., she earned a bachelor's degree from Wellesley College and a master's of library science from the University of Kentucky, which named her alumna of the year in 1996.
Buck spent two years as business manager with the Charleston, W.Va., Chamber Music Society, and then began her library career as director of the Dunbar Public Library in West Virginia. She worked for 12 years with AT&T Bell Laboratories and Bell Communications Research, rising to director of its library network and of human resources planning.
From 1991 to 1995, Buck was university librarian at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, where she directed the revamping of Van Houten Library and guided a move into a new complex.
She was vice president of the Engineering Information Foundation and on the advisory boards of Carnegie Mellon University Libraries and Highsmith Press.
