Director of Library Services and Information Literacy
As the new Director, Allen was the interim Director for the library since early November 2017. Allen's affiliation with Capitol goes back to when he was a student in 1983, the last year that our campus was still in Kensington, MD. Before and after graduating in 1989 Allen worked for NEC, America managing technical writing, editing, and publishing. During that time he was responsible for introducing several innovations (for the time) that included desktop publishing, local area networking, databases to track shipments of manuals and revisions to customers as well as book inventories. In 2005 Allen returned to Capitol to work as the Network Administrator, Computer Services Manager, and the Director of Academic Computing.
