Bharat Mehra

EBSCO Endowed Chair in Social Justice and Professor

Any review of the literature in rural librarianship over the last decade is filled with Bharat Mehra’s name and ideas. Currently the EBSCO Endowed Chair in Social Justice and Professor in the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alabama, Bharat’s work has influenced the attention the field gives the social diversity and complexity of the rural south, and enriched the discussion beyond digital connectivity. He has served as principal investigator on several funded projects supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for more than a million dollars to further community development and economic growth in rural libraries of the Southern and Central Appalachian region.
