Colleen has been the editor of the Library Connect publications since 2010. Before joining Elsevier, she worked in communications positions at the University of California, San Diego and San Diego State University, where she started a faculty/staff news website. Her goal with Library Connect is to provide a forum in which librarians from around the world can share their current thinking on broad and systemic issues, as well as practical, hands-on advice based on their own challenges and successes. Colleen attends several librarian conferences a year to meet potential authors and keep a finger on the pulse of what’s happening within the world of library and information science.
