Tod Colegrove, one of the driving forces behind the success of the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center’s @One facility, has been named head of the DeLaMare Library, Steve Zink, vice president of information technology, announced this week.

Colegrove was chosen following a national search, Zink said.

“Over the past 18 months, Tod has been a familiar face in the @One facility in the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center,” Zink said. “Through his efforts and many others, @One quickly became one of the most popular places to be on campus. His special rapport in working with students as well as a service-first approach won him numerous accolades from faculty and colleagues.

“Tod’s combination of education, experience, skills and service are extraordinarily well-suited for the position.”

Colegrove, who also serves as an instructor of stellar astronomy, holds an M.S.L.I.S. from Drexel University and a Ph.D. in physics.

The DeLaMare Library is considered one of the University’s most important information resources, and offers one of the campus’ most beautiful spots. Located in the Mackay Mines Building, the DeLaMare Library houses materials from the fields of earth sciences, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, geological, mechanical, metallurgical and mining engineering,
chemistry, physics and computer science.

The library is named in honor of Grover Whitby “Dee” DeLaMare, a 1938 graduate of the University.
