Meghan Elizabeth Sitar
Director of Connected Scholarship
As Director of Connected Scholarship at the University of Michigan Library, I lead a team of individuals that maximizes the impact of the library and empowers learners at all levels by building sustainable, ethical, and mutually transformative relationships between people, collections, methods, and knowledge. Connected Scholarship includes Ask a Librarian, the Computer and Video Game Archive, ScholarSpace in the Hatcher Graduate Library, and the Shapiro Design Lab. In my role, I contribute to service and space design initiatives, service strategy, and community-driven learning programs.
Prior to joining U-M in 2016, I was the Director of Research and Learning Services at Olin and Uris Libraries at Cornell University for two years. I was previously Instruction and Outreach Librarian at the University of Texas at Austin for almost 10 years, where I also earned my Masters of Science in Information Studies. I am currently active in the Association of College and Research Libraries and its Instruction Section.
