Stephen Krueger has worked in libraries since high school, received his MSLS from UNC Chapel Hill in 2017, and has been working in academic libraries ever since. Krueger’s two areas of scholarship are open access and gender inclusion. After entering the library profession, he started the Gender Variant LIS Network; this is a group for trans and gender variant library workers and students to connect and support each other. Stephen Krueger is the author of Supporting Trans People in Libraries, which offers practical guidelines for making libraries more inclusive to patrons and employees of all genders.
Krueger is a transgender person; he is also white and abled, which gives him a fair amount of privilege that many trans folks do not share. The intersection of race and ability is an important element of gender inclusion, and while he does his best to incorporate it into his practices, he is not an expert on race or disability.
Stephen Krueger’s presentations on gender inclusion have ranged from lightning talks to panels to workshops. As much as possible, he tailors the presentation to the specific needs of the audience; he especially likes going into libraries or other institutions and working with the employees to help them improve their workplace and behavior in a meaningful way.
