Librarian of the Month

March 2019 Librarian of the Month

Michael Wells, Library Director at Thomas More University

Each month, ByWater Solutions recognizes a librarian for their hard work and positive impact on the community. The ByWater team has nominated Michael Wells, Library Director at the Thomas More University Benedictine Library for the Librarian of the month award!

Jessica Zairo, Marketing and Outreach Coordinator recently commented:

Michael has been a fantastic advocate for Open Source Solutions in his library. In 2018, his library migrated to Koha with a staff of 3 and he has worked to get his team motivated and ready for more. We are excited to see what Mike will do next in the Open Source community!
