Had to come up with this recently....so here I am.
Corey Seeman is the Director of the Kresge Business Administration Library of the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Corey started at Michigan in November 2005 as the Associate Director, assumed the role of Interim Director in May 2006 and became the Permanent Director in October 2006. Prior to this position, Corey's jobs included: Associate Dean for Resource and Systems Management at the University of Toledo (Ohio) (May 2001 to November 2005); Library Training Consultant, Innovative Interfaces, Inc. (January 1999 to April 2001); and Manager of Technical Services, National Baseball Library at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Inc. in Cooperstown (November 1996 to November 1998). He started his career as an archivist at the Chicago Historical Society and Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania in Pittsburgh, but with every successive position, moved more into library systems and technical services. He has a M.A.L.S. (1992) from Dominican University (with an emphasis in Cataloging and Archival Management) and a A.B. (Bachelor Degree, 1986) from the University of Chicago (with a major in European History).
He has written articles primarily in the areas such as library systems, cataloging (especially in the context of special library collections) and on collection development issues associated with autism. He also serves as one of the autism book reviewers for Library Journal. Now as a director, he will be focusing his writing on change management in the library and special collection needs management in an academic library. He has been very active in the Innovative Users Group (IUG) and is the Chair for the organization this year (through their annual meeting in San Jose, May 14-17, 2007).

About the Library: The Kresge Business Administration Library (http://www.bus.umich.edu/kresgelibrary/) is an independent library at the University of Michigan and we report to the administration of the Ross School of Business. While it is not part of the University Library system, Kresge works closely with the main library to collaborate on the purchases of electronic resources for the whole U of M system. We have an library materials budget of just over $1 million a year and the bulk of that goes to electronic resources.
