Who am I?

My name is Callan Bignoli. I'm the director of the library at the wonderfully weird Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Massachusetts. That being said, absolutely nothing I post on my social media accounts, this website, or my blog is intended to represent the official views of my employer.

What do I do?

 advocate for and strengthen libraries

 criticize "Big Tech" and work to re-politicize STEM

 push myself and my profession to acknowledge its own overwhelming homogenity, and respond with more meaningful efforts towards inclusion and anti-oppressive thinking

 present about user experience, service design, worker well-being, and troublesome tech trends

I do lots of library stuff. Heck, I even co-wrote a book about it for the good people at ALA Editions. I also love to cook, have two cats, support college radio & local music, and wander the world on foot & bicycle.

How can you reach me?

Send me an email at callan.bignoli AT gmail DOT com. I am available for remote speaking engagements about library worker advocacy, technology management (& criticism), and applying user-centered design & planning principles to library work.
