Meet the Staff
Paul Millette, Director of Griswold Library and Computing & Technology Services
Employed at Green Mountain College since 1999 Paul has seen Griswold Library transition from largely a collection of print materials to become an increasingly large and impressive collection of electronic resources. Paul, along with the entire staff of Griswold Library and Computing & Technology Services believes that an elemental feature of a college education is the ability to effectively use information technology, access information resources, and evaluate such as to measures of its quality and appropriateness. When away from the library Paul enjoys cooking and gardening, visiting Vermont farmers markets, and reading history and biography. Professing a strong aversion for motorized recreational vehicles Paul likes to amble along abandoned country roads and roam urban sidewalks. He thinks Vermont cheeses are the best.
