To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Engineering Libraries Division of the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) and the seventy-fifth anniversary of the creation of the Engineering School Libraries Committee (ESLC), the authors of this paper want to highlight the outstanding accomplishments of a former member of ESLC, Dorothy Murray Crosland, who was director of the Library at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) for more than four decades. Dorothy Crosland was the longest serving head of the library in Georgia Tech’s history. She made many notable contributions to the Library, the Institute, the profession, and beyond. This paper will focus on her accomplishments, particularly in the areas of Georgia Tech’s library buildings, collections, and information science education.
