Chris Sweet

Information Literacy and Scholarly Communications Librarian

Personal profile


Hello, my name is Chris Sweet and I am the Information Literacy and Scholarly Communications Librarian at Illinois Wesleyan University. I have a diverse library background that includes experience in archives, public libraries, and community colleges. This diversity, along with my liberal arts background, has heavily influenced my scholarship. I have eclectic and ever-changing interests, but much of my scholarship revolves around information literacy, library instruction, and social justice. In 2015 I began researching and writing about the history of bicycling.
