With the Summer semester coming to a close, and fall semester right around the corner, you may have noticed a new face in the library at the Parham Road Campus.
At the end of June, the library was pleased to welcome David “Will” Weaver as our electronic/web services librarian.
Will served three and a half years as Systems Librarian with Henrico County Public Library. In his tenure with HCPL, he achieved several notable accomplishments, which included overseeing a successful migration of the ILS to a hosted/SaaS solution; streamlining/automating several daily workflow tasks; enhancing the aesthetic and functionality of the online catalog; overseeing the system administration of the opening of two new libraries; and laying the groundwork for migrating to a modern, updated online discovery layer.
Prior to working with HCPL, Will served as a teacher and librarian with Henrico County Public Schools, including serving four years as librarian and girl’s assistant basketball coach at Highland Springs High School.
Outside of the library profession, Will is an avid music and film enthusiast and in 2012 co-founded a local non-profit film collective Good Day RVA, which films local bands in unique areas around Richmond and across the state. From filming and editing, to managing the website, Will is highly involved in the group’s creative output. Other hobbies include trail running, basketball, cider-making, and fishing.
Please join us in welcoming Will to the Reynolds family!
