Ken Varnum

Senior Program Manager and Discovery Strategist

About me

As LIT's senior program manager, my responsibilities include technology and project management for discovery (Library Search), delivery (MGet It), and the library's analytics infrastructure.

I serve on a number of library committees and working groups, including the Web Presence Steering Committee and DAAG (Discovery & Access Advisory Group, formerly PARC). Beyond the library, I am a member of the NISO Open Discovery Initiative's Standing Committee and am editor of ALA's open-access, peer-reviewed journal, Information Technology and Libraries (ITAL).

I enjoy being part of the broader library technology community and fairly frequently write and speak for library technology audiences. I maintain a list of bookspublications, and presentations on my personal website.

My office phone number is temporarily disconnected while I work remotely due to COVID-19. Please contact me via email.
