Abstract: A library software company has filed a complaint with the Scott County Attorney’s Office, asking it to investigate the actions of former Bettendorf Public Library Director Steven Nielsen. The complaint claims Nielsen may have broken the law when he led a consortium of local libraries that chose to buy software from one of the company’s competitors and later accepted a job from the winning company. Nielsen could not be reached immediately for comment. The complaint filed by an attorney for SirsiDynix, claims that Nielsen may have violated Iowa code by having a conflict of interest and accepting a promise or other consideration from a third party for the performance of a required duty.
