Christina Golm

Opening the world to people through new technologies is one of the greatest satisfactions Christina knows. Many of her favorite work experiences –– at DePaul Library, Indiana University and Henika District Library –– involved coaching people with a spectrum of computer skills to use new technologies to access information. Her academic experiences have focused on technology, teaching, research, writing grant applications, conducting surveys, and publishing papers in peer-reviewed journals. She joined forces with people who have mental health, developmental, and cognitive disabilities to raise public awareness of Disability culture.

As an ALFA Fellow, Christina is learning how to better help people who are blind, hearing impaired, or who have physical disabilities to effectively use information technologies. Once her LIS degree is complete, she hopes to work with communities to marshal resources to make library services truly accessible to everyone.
