About Me

 


Amelia Gibson is an Assistant Professor at the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her primary research interests center on health information behavior, and local communities and places as information systems. She is particularly interested in the effects of place, space, and community on the information worlds, information behavior, information needs, and information access of various populations. Her current work focuses on information poverty and how intersections of identity, place, space, and social and economic power/privilege influence information access and information behavior.
