He became head of cataloging in 1988, head of technical services in 1995, and the licensing agent for the entire Tri-College library system in 2000. With the merger of all of the departments in Information Services, he took on the task of setting up the nodes as well as taking over the responsibility for budgeting for the consortium and for IS.”
