Melissa P. Johnston is an Associate Professor at the University of West Georgia. She teaches graduate courses in the school library media program. Johnston worked as a school librarian for 13 years in Georgia before obtaining her PhD at Florida State University. Johnston’s research and publications focus on the school librarian as a leader, the school librarian's role in technology integration, and school librarianship on a global level. Johnston is the author of numerous articles in journals such as School Library Research, School Libraries Worldwide, and School Library Connection. She is currently PI on for the REALISD Project, an IMLS funded grant, to provide professional development for school librarians to support STEM education efforts in their schools. Additionally, she is a Co-PI on the IMLS funded Online Ready research project to determine what gaps exist in the design and delivery of culturally competent online K-12 instruction by school librarians, and to use that knowledge to create professional development that will specifically address those gaps. Johnston is currently a co-editor of School Libraries Worldwide, the official research journal for the International Association of School Librarianship, and the Chair of the IASL Research SIG.
