Geffert is keenly interested in the future of libraries and scholarly publishing, particularly changes in the production and distribution of scholarship and the shifting assumptions and research habits of the scholars and students that libraries serve.  He  has served as Librarian and Director at St Olaf's College and at the United States Military Academy (West Point). His personal research focuses on Russian social and intellectual history.  In 2010 Notre Dame University Press published his book, Eastern Orthodox and Anglicans: Diplomacy, Theology, and the Politics of Interwar Ecumenism. A second book, A Documentary History of Eastern Orthodox Christianity is due out shortly.
