Sustainable Collection Services

Rick has worked with academic libraries since 1983. As a consultant and vendor, he has written approval  plans, streamlined workflows, evaluated collections, and designed library-friendly products and services. He holds an MLIS from Simmons College. 

In 2007, Rick saw a growing need to weed monographs collections—responsibly, intelligently, and efficiently. His interest in this unlikely topic is partly karmic: having spent the first half of his career putting books into libraries, he must now spend the second half taking them back out.
