Faculty Profiles

Sarah Stanley Headshot

Sarah Stanley, M.S.

Assistant Professor of Library Science

On Faculty since 2016

Sarah is a proud Midwesterner with a lifelong love of the St. Louis Cardinals, theology and history. Having had the privilege of starting her career working for some great nonprofit organizations, she is now thrilled to be a professional librarian, spending her days among cool resources, students, and colleagues. Her “happy place” is the secure storage area of Special Collections, Buswell Library, where she can sometimes be found perusing a 16th-century devotional text. Having rediscovered pottery during her theological graduate studies, Sarah also has a deep affection for the ceramic arts. She enjoys making mugs, and can wax rhapsodic about the wonders of a well-formed handle.
