Role in the Library
Keith leads the team responsible for providing effective and responsive services, spaces, library instruction, and outreach for the Auraria Library. The Education and Public Services Division coordinates the maintenance and improvement of the facility and provides many of the library's front-line services including the Ask Us and Ask Me service desks, Research Tutoring and consultations, and classroom instruction. Keith also coordinates with scholarly services from across campus that are operating in the Knowledge Market.
Starting out as a page at his local public library, Keith worked for 15 years in library access and public services departments in Kansas and Colorado prior to moving into library administration. Before joining the Auraria Library staff in August 2017, he served as the Operations Manager for the William M. White Business Library at CU Boulder where he oversaw day to day operations and performed library instruction. His research has centered on understanding user interactions with library space and the incorporation of digital resources into the physical collection.
