Hello and welcome to my homepage. My name is Stacy Zemke and I am an Instructor in the School of Library and Information Studies.

I was born in Oklahoma, but started my academic career in Art History at the University of Colorado in Boulder. After earning my Master Degree I worked as the Fine Arts Slide Librarian at CU, where I got hooked on technology and how it could be used in academic environments. I then worked in distance education and faculty technology support at the University of Central Oklahoma and the University of Oklahoma Information Technology Department.

I started as an adjunct instructor for the School or Library and Information Studies(SLIS) at OU. In 2005, I started to work full time for SLIS as the ALA Accreditation Coordinator and then as a full time instructor.

In 2003 I also started the Knowledge Management Master of Science Program in SLIS. I graduated in 2007, after completing my these on the use of Social Networking in academic environments.
