Lauren B. Collister
Scholarly Communications Librarian and Sociolinguist
I’m a scholarly communications professional and a sociolinguist.
I currently work for the University Library System at the University of Pittsburgh. I do open access advocacy, copyright and author rights education, and work on systems to help scholars share their work and track the impact of their work. I study the uses of alternative metrics and the impact of library publishing programs, and participate in the OpenCon Librarian community.
I write on sociolinguistics topics including language and the internet, language change, and multimodal communication. My research interests include discourse markers and deixis and how those intersect with linguistic innovation in online spaces. I am a member of the Committee on Scholarly Communication in Linguistics for the Linguistic Society of America and the Linguistics Data Interest Group for the Research Data Alliance.
