Preston H. White, coordinator of the Library Computer Learning Center, passed away unexpectedly on October 23. He was 45 years old.

Preston began his career at the University in 1983 as a student employee. In 1986 he began working as a Library Media Technical Assistant 1 in the Law Library. He then joined the University Library in 1992 as the Current Periodicals/Microforms Unit Coordinator.

He served the Library in various capacities over his 14-year career here. Most notably, he was integral in establishing and maintaining two cutting-edge labs in the Library--the Adaptive Technology Lab for students with disabilities and the Library Computer Learning Center for training students in computer software use.
