Stacey Brownlie moved from Pennsylvania to join the team as an academic librarian for Off-Campus Library Services in November 2015. She is now the Director for OCLS. Stacey brings over a decade of experience in public, academic and special libraries. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in Journalism in 2003 and her Master of Science in Library Science in 2007 from Clarion University of Pennsylvania. She brings experience in embedded and virtual librarianship and in teaching information literacy and first year experience. Stacey loves helping students see research as a journey and scholarship as a conversation. The most important elements (human and otherwise) of her life are coffee, her partner, her son and daughter and her parrot, Kiki.
Stacey’s interests include improving library service to satellite students, particularly the incarcerated, FYE and Bridge Year student populations; blended librarianship and the integration of librarians with the instructional design and tutoring fields; critical literacy and the #critlib movement; as well as accessibility and universal design. When she is not traveling to other sites, centers or campuses, Stacey’s can be found in the Katz Library building on the UMA campus.
