Department Head Access and Public Services
Role in the Library
Keith leads the team responsible for providing effective and responsive services and spaces in the Auraria Library. The Access and Public Services Department 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, course reserves, and circulation. Keith also coordinates with scholarly services operating in the Knowledge Market.
Starting out as a page at his local public library, Keith has worked for 15 years in library access and public services departments in Kansas and Colorado. 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. His research has centered on understanding user interactions with library space and the incorporation of digital resources into the physical collection.
