2023 PTPL Scholarship Recipient: 

Megan Goldfarb

Megan Goldfarb (she/her) is in her second year of the online MSLIS program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where she is pursuing a pathway in information organization and management. She holds a BFA in Painting & Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University, and has remained at VCU as a Collections Specialist at James Branch Cabell Library.

She hopes to use metadata to support the intersections between materials, their subjects, and their users through a community-oriented lens that prioritizes accessibility and social justice. Megan is also interested in the ability of libraries and archives to support communities of artists and creators whose work might otherwise not be preserved and shared.
