Elvin Boone started working in the Thomas Cooper Library as a student attending UofSC and, really, never left. He studied English Literature. The UofSC Blackboard team scooped him up in 2019, and he's been managing projects, giving workshops and generally trying to stay out of trouble ever since.


Mitchell West
Director
eLearning Services


Originally from Washington, D.C. but now a tried and true Columbia native, Mitchell West is the director of eLearning Services in the Division of Information Technology. When he isn't managing his amazing team and providing Blackboard support to the awesome faculty here at UofSC, you might find him watching a Washington Nationals game or hanging out with his pets. One of West's favorite quotes is, "Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend; inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." - Groucho Marx.
