Kaitlin Montague

Kaitlin E. Montague is a PhD candidate from Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey, at the School of Communication and Information in the Department of Library and Information Science (LIS). Her research focuses on vehicle residents’ information practices and their most prevalent information resources and source preferences to support their daily lives using ethnographic and visual methods. Her aim is to understand how information institutions, namely public libraries, can create service provisions to help support this marginalized community. Montague also explores the ways that place and mobility impact information access and sharing among this population. Kaitlin received a Master of Information (MI) from Rutgers in 2016. She worked as a public librarian for four years before returning to Rutgers to begin the PhD program in LIS.
