Lisa Bartle is a reference librarian at California State University, San Bernardino.

She earned a BA in English (1990) and an MA in English, with an emphasis on Medieval and Renaissance poetry, prose, and drama (1993).

After working as a student in one of UCSB's libraries, then a staff member at the UCR Physical Sciences Library, she decided to earn a Masters in Library and Information Science and become a librarian. She graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1997. While attending UCLA she came up with the idea for the Database of Award-Winning Children's Literature.

Lisa is deeply committed to the idea of providing information for free. She believes that the Internet has given everyone the ability to collaborate, to create new services, and to share information. In May 2002, she created ABC-Lit: An Index to Children's Literature Scholarship -- another free resource to aid those interested in children's literature, which is now suspended due to difficulties with service providers.
