He was collection development librarian at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, before coming to Seattle University as university librarian in 1980. When he retired in 1994 his accomplishments included developing library collection development policies in support of the curriculum and managing the library’s participation in a grant-funded Academic Library Development Program, sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). In 1989-90 under his leadership the library transitioned from a traditional card catalog to its first online-integrated library system, SIRSI Unicorn System.After retiring, Thomas returned to composing music and self-published a couple of disks of his compositions early this century. He was 87 at the time of his death. He is survived by one son and four grandchildren. No memorial services are planned at this time. The family has asked memorial donations be made to the Jefferson County Humane Society.Marketing WorkshopWednesday, Sept. 18, 9-11 a.m.Pigott 101Marketing Communications invites the campus community to its September marketing workshop, which will cover:
