Dean Colegrove’s new book informs library students and practitioners

Book cover of Tod Colegrove's new textbook
Selecting and Implementing Technologies in Libraries, A Primer, by Tod Colegrove

Patrick “Tod” Colegrove, dean of Albertsons Library, has published a textbook that explains how academic libraries can succeed when makerspaces, collection-development and library outreach align their messaging.

Selecting and Implementing Technologies in Libraries, A Primer is written as a textbook for library and information science students. The instruction is also a valuable resource for all levels of library practitioners in public, academic and special libraries.

This go-to guide provides the framework to overlap design-thinking with best practices in emerging technology and library practice. New technology and services are fundamental to maintaining the relevance of libraries today. Colegrove helps to determine which ones make sense to implement, and which to avoid.
