Executive Director, Service
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 MLS from Simmons College. In 2007, Rick saw a growing need to weed monographs collections—responsibly, intelligently, and efficiently. He and his partners founded Sustainable Collection Services in 2011 to build a decision-support system for managing monographs over time. In his current role as Executive Director of SCS, Rick speaks and writes frequently on deselection and shared print.
