Linda L. Lillard

Linda L. Lillard holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business Education and an M.L.S. and Ph.D. in Library and Information Management from Emporia State University in Kansas. She was on faculty at University of Central Missouri, University of Kentucky, and Emporia State University before she came home to Pennsylvania to Clarion University. Dr. Lillard’s dissertation research was on the information seeking behaviors and information needs of people working in online environments, specifically eBay entrepreneurs. As an entrepreneur herself on several occasions: Taos Candy Factory in Taos, New Mexico and Pak-n-Ship in Emporia, KS, Dr. Lillard has always been interested in the information needs of entrepreneurs. The advent of the online environment broadened her research interests to people working in an online environment and thus she has also studied embedded librarianship and worked with LIS students to embed them in online courses to assist other students with their information needs.
