Megan Dempsey, MSLIS, MA

Hi! My name is Megan Dempsey and I've been the Instructional Services Librarian at the Evelyn S. Field Library since 2007. Currently, I am the library liaison to the Business & Public Service department, English department, and the RVCC Honors College. 

My two primary areas of interest are information literacy and open educational resources. The recent achievement I am most proud of is working with the RVCC Foundation to secure grant funding for faculty to adopt open educational resources in their classes instead of requiring expensive, commercial textbooks. In the first round of grant funding, 17 RVCC faculty members were approved for 12 OER projects, a pilot program that has the potential to save our students over $100,000 in the first year alone. 


I am available for one-on-one research consultations Monday through Friday. Evening appointments can be scheduled in advanced; please send me an email with the day and time you are looking for.
