Elizabeth M. Lorang

Who is Liz?

I’m an associate professor and humanities librarian in the University Libraries at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, where I'm also an interim associate dean with responsibility for the Libraries' teaching and research programs. As a librarian, I collaborate with students, teachers, and researchers at all levels to foster critical analysis, application, and creation of information and information structures. I teach in multiple environments and for multiple audiences, cultivate and participate in communities of learning and practice, and advance ethical and equitable information ecosystems through teaching, research, and public engagement efforts.

I co-direct the Aida digital libraries research team and am a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, where I also contribute to the Genoa Indian School Digital Reconciliation Project.

I'm privileged to be a part of some amazing collaborations and learn every day from my inspiring colleagues, mentors, students, and friends. I emphatically believe that libraries of all kinds—academic, public, and more—are crucial to an informed and engaged public and that libraries can and should actively work to create equitable futures.
