Jason Ezell is the Instruction and Research Coordinator, leading the Monroe Library instruction program in its mission of providing both formal library instruction and research support. He began work at Loyola in 2016, following academic librarian experience at the University of South Alabama, Towson University, and Lincoln Memorial University. His professional research interests and experience include information literacy program development, assessment, interdisciplinary research, and discovery processes. He has presented on such topics at annual conferences such as the Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy, LOEX, and the Southeastern Library Association. He has completed the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Immersion programs in both the assessment and program tracks and was a 2013 recipient of the ACRL’s inaugural Assessment in Action grant.

As the liaison to the Honors program, and Criminology and Justice, History, Sociology, and Teacher Education departments, Jason provides instruction and research support for both humanities and social science approaches to research. His research in American studies is also interdisciplinary, focusing on LGBT cultural and political history, affect, and critical rural/regional studies. A recipient of research travel grants both to Duke’s Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History & Culture and to the New York Public Library’s LGBT collections, Jason has presented this research at the Appalachian Studies Association and Black Mountain College conferences.
