Sarah Beth Nelson
Doctoral Candidate

I am currently a Doctoral Candidate in the University of North Carolina School of Information and Library Science. My area of research interest is oral information practices. 

Before beginning my doctoral degree I was an elementary librarian at The Lovett School in Atlanta, Georgia. I have also worked as a children's library assistant at the Athens-Clarke County Library in Athens, Georgia. While living abroad in Norwich, UK, I created a small collection of American picture books and presented programs on American culture and WWII for the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library

I received an EdS in Learning Design and Technology with a focus on School Library Media from the University of Georgia and an MLIS from the University of Alabama School of Library and Information Studies.

Previously, I received an AB in Latin and English from the University of Georgia. During the summer of 2005, I studied abroad in Rome, Italy with the UGA Department of Classics
