Paulette Rothbauer

Associate Professor, Library and Information Science, Western University

I'm an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Information & Media Studies at Western. I teach primarily in the graduate programs in Library and Information Science. While I maintain an active research interest in the reading practices of teens and young adults, my new research agenda has taken a turn to look more closely at the place of reading and libraries among older adults. I also continue to be interested in the public library as place.
