Before being named CEO of LYRASIS, Robert Miller was the General Manager of Digital Libraries at the Internet Archive, where he oversaw the scanning of millions of books in both the United States and in a host of other countries. It is my opinion that librarianship was a contagious disease that infected him. He simply fell in love with the mission of libraries, so it was no surprise when I learned that Robert had been tapped to lead LYRASIS in June 2015.
Now that he has had some time to settle in, I interviewed Robert last week to learn more about his vision and the business model he is using to support it. I am continually fascinated by entrepreneurial approaches applied to non-profit and cultural organizations, so it was a special pleasure to learn more the methods and approaches Robert is bringing to LYRASIS.
