Rick is a familiar face to many MLS library members, as a technologist, teacher, consultant, and musician. Among his projects are years of database research, technology implementation, training, event coordination, and troubleshooting.

Rick has also contributed generously to our professional organizations, serving in the NELA Information Technology Section and coordinating technology at many local conferences and events. Sometimes he even brings his guitar along!

Rick joined the staff at the Central Massachusetts Regional Library System in 1998 and was part of the original advisory team at the MA Library System.

We will miss his expertise, good humor and wit, as well as his dedication to the best service for libraries of all types and sizes.  We all wish him the best as he transitions to retirement on January 1st!
