Meet your SCPS Librarians

Meagan Kinsley

As the Online and Distance Learning Librarian, assisting students is one of my primary responsibilities. I work to ensure that SCPS students know how to take advantage of all the library has to offer. Please let me know if you¹d like research guidance for your courses or if you have questions about library services, such as how to find and obtain books or articles or how to access library resources online. To get in touch, email me at or call me at 434-924-7410 or 1-800-580-7163.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and earned my Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Washington in Seattle. I’ve worked at academic libraries — large and small, public and private — in Oregon, Washington, Virginia, and Washington, DC. I work in Alderman Library, but am available to help you in person, over the phone, or via email. Just ask!

After getting my MLS from Catholic University I’ve worked in Alderman Library for many years at the main Reference Desk, as well as in Periodicals/Microforms and Government Documents. I welcomed the opportunity several years ago to begin working with Elizabeth Margutti, helping SCPS students with their research. Since then I’ve worked in person, in classes, via email and on the phone to teach SCPS students to navigate Virgo and the databases to find the sources they need. This work has been a continuing pleasure for me! The research guides I’ve compiled include African American Studies; BIS/SCPS Research & Writing; Newspapers; Poverty; Statistics; Women’s Studies.
