Anita Beaman

Director, Post Baccalaureate Certificate Program in School Librarianship
Illinois State University

Anita Beaman earned her Masters in English from Eastern Illinois University and an Masters in Library Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. She has worked as a librarian in nearly every kind of library: school, public, university, community college and special collections. She spent ten years working as a high school librarian, including 5 years as the librarian at University High School, ISU’s laboratory school. She began teaching library science courses at ISU and UIUC during her time at UHigh, and became the Director of the Post Baccalaureate Certificate Program in School Librarianship at ISU in 2011. As the only full time faculty member in the program, Anita oversees the program curriculum, advises students and teaches in the program. She enjoys challenging educators to expand their definition of “reading,” and Anita regularly delivers workshops and keynote addresses at local, state, and national conferences. As a librarian and library science instructor, Anita is interested in the role technology plays in education, and more specifically in how we read, research, teach and learn.
