Berkshire Community College (BCC) has named Richard Felver director of the Jonathan Edwards Library.
In his new role, Felver will provide leadership and direction in the operation of the library. He will direct, organize and oversee all areas of operation as he seeks to apply his artistic and creative background to the ever-changing world of the academic library.
“We are pleased to have Richard join BCC,” said BCC’s Vice President for Academic Affairs Frances Feinerman. “His creativity, adaptability and technology know-how will benefit the institution as we embrace continuing change in our facilities and technology, but also student needs and our desire to transform the library into a place that goes well beyond serving as a place to only access information.”
Felver joins BCC from Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., where he served as a reference librarian for the Tuck School of Business and the Thayer School of Engineering. Prior to that, he worked as a distance, adult and online education librarian with Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance from the University of Windsor in Ontario, a master’s degree in Library & Information Science from the University of South Florida in Tampa and an MBA from Southeastern University.
An accomplished classical pianist, Felver enjoys assisting his local church with choir direction. He resides in Dalton with his wife and two young children.
