Linds, or Lindsay, Roberts (pronouns: they/them) is an Assistant Professor at University of Colorado Boulder and subject liaison to the School of Education, Department of Linguistics, and Department of Ethnic Studies. Their research interests focus on the teaching of information literacy, motivational design for learning, transfer of learning, access to academic libraries, and metacognition, particularly as they relate to adult learners.
Lindsay earned an MLIS from University of Denver and a BA in French and Humanities from CU Boulder. Before joining the University Libraries, they worked as Reference and Outreach Librarian at Arapahoe Community College and as a graduate assistant in Research and Instruction at Auraria Library.
Before becoming a librarian Lindsay worked at the Boulder Book Store for five years (including the position as chocolate buyer!). Lindsay also taught English to French high school students in Vesoul, France for a year, where students participated in the 1001 Journals Project, and where they were able to indulge in their love of French cheese.
In their spare time, Lindsay loves exploring Colorado on trail runs, hikes, cooking adventurous vegetarian dishes, trying new breweries, and reading.
