Kevin Smith became the first Michael and Eugenia Wormser Director of the Libraries at Colby College in August 2022.  Prior to Colby, he was Dean of the Libraries at the University of Kansas, where he also taught Copyright Law as Courtesy Professor of Law.  He became dean at KU in 2016 after 10 years as Director of Copyright and Scholarly Communications at the Duke University Libraries. In his role as both a librarian and a lawyer specializing in intellectual property issues, Smith advises faculty, staff, and students about the impact of copyright, licensing, and the changing nature of scholarly publishing in higher education.  He has also taught a course on Legal Issues for Libraries with Will Cross at the UNC School of Information and Library Science.  Smith is the author of numerous articles on the impact of copyright law and the internet on scholarly research as well as libraries' role in the academy. He has been a highly regarded blogger on these issues for many years, and in 2013 published Owning and Using Scholarship: An IP Handbook for Teachers and Researchers with the Association of College and Research Libraries.  His book on Coaching Copyright, with Erin Ellis, was released by the American Library Association in the spring of 2019.
