    In February, Kevin Kidd began his tenure as Director of the Wentworth Alumni Library. Prior to arriving at Wentworth, Kevin served at the Boston College University Libraries where he was the Head of Library Systems and Applications. His work has even taken him as far away as Florence, Italy, where he spent a year as the Senior Research Fellow in E-Resources and Systems at the European University Institute.  With more than twenty years of experience in university libraries and a passion for technology, Kevin is sure to bring new ideas and strong leadership to the Wentworth Library.
