Avenues for Support and Guidance
Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at 10:00am CT
Abigail L. Phillips, PhD is an assistant professor in the School of Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Her general research interests include youth, social media, cyberbullying, empathy, librarianship, libraries, maker edu, neurodiversity, advocacy, and mental health. Abigail received her PhD in Information Science from the School of Information at Florida State University in the Spring of 2016. Before beginning the PhD program, she worked as public librarian at a rural library system in Southwest Georgia. Her work with young adults as a librarian is the root of her research interest in this population, as well as her advocacy for youth voices to be respected, heard, and included in any discussions that impact them.
In the session, the presenter will discuss the intersection between cyberbullying, mental health issues, and library support. Cyberbullying has long lasting and devastating consequences on youth and adults alike. Through empathy and compassionate services, librarians and library workers could support and nurture those who are enduring cyberbullying in their everyday life.
