Dr. Lucy Santos Green's research explores the role of the school librarian as an instructional designer and partner. It examines instructional partnerships between school library professionals and other educators; school librarians as pedagogical and technological leaders; and school librarians as designers of learning environments.


Green seeks to implement pedagogical practices, design elements and learning environment characteristics that best support student learning and curiosity — regardless of the course setting. She integrates student work and assignments that are as immediately relevant and applicable to professional practice as possible. Green teaches Information Technology in School Library Programs and Curricular Role of the School Librarian.
