Elizabeth M. Lorang

Who is Liz?

I’m an Associate Professor and Humanities Librarian, as well as an interim Associate Dean, in the University Libraries at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. I'm helping to lead the University Libraries through an important moment of transition, as we celebrate who we are and imagine who we want to become. 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, just information ecosystems through teaching, research, and public engagement efforts.

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.
