Barbara Fister has coordinated instruction at the Gustavus Adolphus College library in St. Peter, Minnesota, for over 25 years, but is still learning how to help students (and faculty) learn. She has studied students’ research processes, examined the relationship between writing and research, and teaches an upper division course on how information works. She has written widely on open access to scholarship and is interested in the future of publishing of all kinds. She has a decade of experience serving as her library’s department chair in an innovative collaborative management model that encourages creativity and experimentation.
