Bloomfield College has announced the appointment of Dr. Greg Reid as Library Director. A distinguished librarian, Dr. Reid, who most recently served as Executive Director of Central Park Campus Library at Collin College in McKinney, Texas, has spent his entire 23-year career in higher education library settings.

“We are so fortunate to have Dr. Greg Reid join the Bloomfield College community. Dr. Reid has many years of experience working as a Director, and helped to revitalize several institutional libraries during his career,” said Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty. “I look forward to working with Dr. Reid and his staff to continue to strengthen our library.”

Dr. Reid earned a Bachelor of Science degree in German from University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and a Master of Arts degree in German Literature from the University of Notre Dame. In 2003, he completed his Doctor of Philosophy (Information Studies) degree from Florida State University.

Dr. Reid began his career as a Public Services Librarian at Milwaukee Area Technical College, where he recommended purchases of books and equipment and redesigned and implemented new work areas.

He would then move on to become Head Librarian at Florida Metropolitan University and Westwood College of Technology in Woodridge, Illinois, where he would open library operations on the brand-new campus. Before leaving Illinois, Dr. Reid served as Librarian at MacCormac College, and then relocated to California to serve as Executive Director of the Learning Resources Center at Southern California University of Health Sciences. He would later return to MacCormac College as Academic Dean for three years.

After accepting the position of Dean of Learning Resources and Technology and later Dean of Academic Affairs and Library, both at Colorado Heights University, he spent the next three years in Colorado before assuming his most current role at Central Park Campus Library at Collin College in Texas.

As Library Director at Bloomfield College, Dr. Reid will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the library, Media Center, and Learning Hub; manage the budget of the Library and Media Center; assure adequate hours of service; maintain a learning environment for students and faculty; and collaborate with faculty in developing and enhancing the book, media, and electronic collections. In addition, the Director is responsible for the planning and implementation of transformational approaches to student engagement with the Library, Media Center, and Learning Hub.
