Dr. Lucy Santos Green
Lucy Santos Green’s teaching is focused on school librarianship, technology integrated learning, and organizational management. She is co-editor of the International Association of School Librarianship’s peer-reviewed research journal, School Libraries Worldwide, and president-elect of the Association for Library and Information Science Education. She frequently speaks and publishes on school librarianship for marginalized populations with a focus on first-generation immigrants and LGBTQIA+ families, instructional partnerships between school librarians and other educators, technology-integrated learning, and the design and development of digital learning environments. Her latest book, “LGBTQIA+ Inclusive Children’s Librarianship: Policies, Programs, and Practices” (Libraries Unlimited, 2022) has been described as “an invaluable guide for libraries seeking to serve all children.” In addition to editing two other books on flipped learning in higher education and collaborative instructional partnerships, she has authored more than 40 articles and presented internationally and nationally more than 120 times on school librarianship, technology-enabled inquiry learning, and research methods in LIS. Green currently leads EQuIP and Online Ready, both federally funded research projects that explore ways to help school librarians grow professionally and have meaningful impact on student learning. She is also a project member and materials contributor to the Get Ready Stay Ready: Community Action Toolkit, a collection of materials that educates parents and caregivers on the crucial role of information literacy and intellectual freedom in student college and career readiness.
