Shari Laster (a person)


I am currently the Head of Open Stack Collections at Arizona State University Library. Prior to this position, I was the Government Information Librarian & Data Services Librarian at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and before that I was the Government Documents Librarian at the University of Akron.

I am an active member of the PEGI Project steering committee. I am also a past chair of the Depository Library Council, the advisory body for the Federal Depository Library Program, and have recently served as chair of the Government Documents Round Table of the American Library Association. Since 2016 I have been the instructor for “Government Information Sources and Services” for the iSchool at Kent State University.

I hold an MS in Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a BA from Rice University.
