He will work closely with the Customer Support team and Marketing Manager to facilitate company relationships with both current and prospective customers.

Mask was a librarian for nineteen years before joining Auto-Graphics, Inc. With experience in academic and public librarianship, he has experience in ILS implementations, acquisitions and cataloging, electronic resources management, and customer support. Concentrating on technical services and ILS administration, he managed the Collection Department of La Crosse Public Library for nine years. Prior to that, he held system librarian and technical services librarian positions at several liberal arts colleges. Alan holds a Master of Science in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin- Madison and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion from the University of Iowa.
