Hi, I’m Maggie Murphy! I’m an Art & Design Librarian and associate professor in the UNC Greensboro University Libraries. I work with students, faculty, and curators in the School of Art, the departments of History, Interior Architecture, Media Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies, and the Weatherspoon Art Museum towards the goal of ethical and critical information access, use, and creation.

I am a co-author of the ACRL Framework for Visual Literacy in Higher Education and the lead editor for Unframing the Visual: Visual Literacy Pedagogy for Academic Libraries and Information Spaces (2024). My scholarly interests include practice-based research methods for studio artists and speculative pedagogies for creative engagement with AI. I am also a printer and mixed media artist who explores the vulnerability of existential disquietude.
