Personal profile

Kim M. Thompson is a Senior Lecturer in the Charles Sturt University School of Information Studies. She received her MS and PhD degrees in Library and Information Studies from Florida State University and her BA in English from Brigham Young University. She is a member of the Advisory Board for the Library and Information Science Program at the Universidad Pedagogica Nacional Francisco Morazan in Honduras and an Affiliate Faculty member of the Information Policy and Access Center of the University of Maryland School of Information, USA. 

Kim's research and teaching draw upon a background spanning information studies, library science, and international consulting with a focus on the physical, intellectual, and socio-cultural supports for and barriers to information access and digital inclusion. Her work primarily focuses on underserved and disadvantaged populations and is based mainly on qualitative techniques, policy analysis, and theory development. Implications of her research extend to improving information services in libraries and other information organisations as well as providing greater understanding of information poverty issues on an international scale.
