Who We Are
When Designing Better Libraries debuted in 2007, I invited multiple colleagues to participate. This group of folks included Brian Matthews and John Shank.
Over time, those folks went on to their own blogs and other endeavors and today the sole contributor to Designing Better Libraries is Steven Bell.
Steven Bell is currently Associate University Librarian for Research and Instructional Services at Temple University, and was previously Director of the Library at Philadelphia University. Steven is the author of two regular columns published by Library Journal, From the Bell Tower and Leading From the Library. With John Shank he is co-founder of the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community. Bell and Shank are also authors of the book Academic Librarianship by Design. More information is found at his website.
