Lena Bohman was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and earned a B.A. in American Studies from Brown University and an MLIS from University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. Lena specializes in helping students and faculty with digital projects, including both publicizing research through the web and using digital methods to conduct research, as well as helping run the library’s digital collection and makerspace technology. Lena’s research interests have included rural cemeteries and how they can be a resource for disenfranchised communities and the history of immigrant St. Louis, and she has given conference presentations on the role of animation and digital advertising in Digital Humanities. She and her two dogs, Kenzi and Baxter, participate in dog sports and therapy dog activities, and she is also an avid cross stitcher and collects art, graphic novels, and perfume.
