Lehigh’s History of Library Technology: A Festschrift in honor of Christine Roysdon

On June 30, 2018, library director Christine Roysdon will retire after over 40 years of service to Lehigh University.

During that time, the University Library went through many changes in library technology to support evolving research and teaching practices. To honor Christy for her service to Lehigh’s libraries and for her innovative role in planning for and implementing these changing library technologies, we offer this short digital history of library technology at Lehigh University.




In addition to the timeline, Christy’s publications have been digitized and uploaded to Lehigh Preserve.
