Charleston Library Conference 

Oct 29, 2018

Welcome to ATG the Podcast! I’m Leah Hinds, Executive Director of the Charleston Conference, and I’m happy to welcome two guests to the podcast today. Stephanie S. Rosen is a librarian scholar who brings insights from disability studies—and its intersections with feminist, queer, and critical race studies—into library administration and digital scholarship. She is Associate Librarian and Accessibility Specialist at the University of Michigan Library and holds a PhD in English from University of Texas at Austin. Stephanie is the author of the upcoming title for the Charleston Briefings series, "Accessibility and Publishing". She’s also presenting on the same topic at the upcoming Charleston Conference in just a little over a week!

Matthew Ismail will be interviewing Stephanie. Matthew is the Director of Collection Development at Central Michigan University, and editor in chief of the Charleston Briefings.

Thanks so much to both of you for being here with us today! Now I’ll turn it over to Matthew and Stephanie for the interview.

And thanks also to all of our listeners for tuning in. We’d love to hear from you. If you have questions or comments about today’s show, or suggestions for future podcast topics or speakers, please get in touch. You can use the Contact form on the podcast website,, or you can email me directly at
