Christina Boyle

Emerging Technologies Librarian

Christina Boyle is the Emerging Technologies Librarian and OER Coordinator at the College of Staten Island. She began her tenure-track position in Fall 2020, after three years in the CSI Library in a substitute line. She began as an Instruction/Reference Librarian in Spring 2018 and took on the role of OER Coordinator in Fall 2019 before entering her current position in the Library. Her work is largely focused on identifying different forms of technology that can be incorporated into library instruction and on promoting access for students. Her research interests are centered around popular culture and technology in libraries, and she has previously written and presented on video games and memes as information sources. She is also interested in the growing interdisciplinary field of Comics Studies and is eager to continue to explore these topics as they relate to academic libraries. Christina also has a background in English literature. Both her BA and MA are in this subject, with a focus on medieval works. She also serves as the library liaison to the English Department.
