2011 SSP 33rd Annual Meeting, Westin Copley Place, Boston
Concurrent 5B: Usage Statistics for Wiser Business Decisions
Will has served on the Board of Directors of the Boston Library Consortium since 2007, and the Board’s Management Council since 2010, having previously chaired the BLC’s Cooperative Collections Committee. In 2010 he was also elected to the Board of Directors of the Society for Scholarly Publishing, and he is now in his fourth year of chairing SSP’s Travel Grants committee. Other experience includes service on the Board of NELINET, the New England Library and Information Network, including participation in that organization’s 2009 merger into Lyrasis.
Will has been particularly active in the area of serials and electronic resource librarianship, including three years as Chair of the UK Serials Group, and UKSG delegate to NASIG. He has served on several related ALA committees, on the advisory boards of Academic Press and Wiley, and until recently taught collection development and vendor relations as an adjunct professor at the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science. He has served on EDIFACT and Book Industry Communications Standards Committees, and given numerous presentations at conferences in the US, UK, Netherlands, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
When otherwise at loose, Will is a keen golfer, avid follower of cricket, rugby, and baseball, inept clarinetist, and Vice-President of the Neponset Valley Philharmonic Orchestra.
