Maura A. Smale

I'm Chief Librarian and Department Chair in the Ursula C. Schwerin Library at New York City College of Technology, of the City University of New York. My library background is in information literacy/library instruction, and I've served as a Co-PI for the U.S. Department of Education Title V grant-funded project A Living Laboratory, serving as Institutionalization Lead for the City Tech OpenLab, an open digital platform for teaching, learning, and collaboration.

My experience in anthropology and library and information science is brought together in one of my current research projects: a multi-campus ethnographic study of the scholarly habits and academic culture of undergraduates at CUNY. Other research interests of mine include using games in teaching and learning, open access publishing and new models of scholarly communication, critical information literacy, and instructional technology.
