Quilting is a powerful metaphor for information literacy. Join us to learn how an academic library used a crazy quilt pattern to redesign our information literacy curriculum. Bring your bits and pieces and discuss how we stitched together diverse elements of instruction into a wild and harmonious whole.

Alex Anderlik is the Reference Technician at the University of Montana’s Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library, as well as a student of UM’s History, Central and Southwest Asia Studies, and English programs.

Stephanie Hohn (she/her) will be a Spring 2023 graduate of the University of Montana’s English Literature Department. An employee of both the Mansfield Library’s Information and User Services and Technical Support Departments, her graphic designs have been used in monthly reference displays, library zines, and promotional stickers. A commissioned series of her pattern-focused digital artwork entitled “The Method of Loci” was added to the Mansfield Library’s permanent collection in 2022.

Megan Stark (she/her) is the Undergraduate Services and Outreach Librarian at the University of Montana Missoula Mansfield Library. She is keenly interested in local information, and the many ways that different people create community together.
