ASQ Charleston Quality Library Established

A local quality library has been established for ASQ Charleston!

The reference books listed below have been donated to ASQ Charleston by KB-Analytics Principal and ASQ member Carl Betterton and his partner at KBA, Dr. Lordanis Karagiannidis. This set of reference material is housed at The Citadel’s School of Business in Bond Hall room 274, and all volumes are available to ASQ Charleston members and to Citadel students studying quality management.


Dr. Betterton


Dr. Karagiannidis

Both Dr. Betterton and Dr. Karagiannidis are faculty members in the School of Business, and extend a welcome to ASQ Charleston members to visit campus if they wish use these references, or to borrow them via coordination with Dr. Betterton, who can be reached at or by phone at (843) 953-0834.

Over time, and with help from our members, ASQ Charleston intends to update and expand the reference library by replacing volumes that have a newer edition, and adding books suggested by our members. The Quality Library will become an important asset in support of chapter members studying for ASQ certifications.
