Dennis Massie coordinates the SHARES resource sharing consortium for the OCLC Research Library Partnership and is involved with OCLC Research projects centered on sharing special collections and managing the transition from mostly print journal collections to mostly electronic.
Dennis is drawn more to the operational than to the theoretical, with a keen interest in improving processes. While for years he worked strictly for organizations whose names can be expressed as TLA’s (three-letter acronyms)–the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), New York University (NYU) and the Research Libraries Group (RLG)–Dennis scored a major breakthrough in 2006 by finally gaining employment with a four-letter organization, OCLC.
Dennis holds an MLIS from Queens College, City University of New York, and a Master of Arts degree in Creative
Writing from Emerson College.
