The Equity Minded Academic Library
Thursday, March 31 and Friday, April 1, 9:00am-5:00pm
The last year has been one of reckoning for academic libraries and the society they belong to. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, coupled with social unrest and increased recognition and understanding of the experience of historically marginalized communities, and in particular Black Americans, has brought to the fore many inequities that had previously been hidden, ignored, or unspoken. As academic library workers return to campus and join those who never left, we must reckon with the role we play in perpetuating inequities in our libraries, on our campuses, and in our communities. How can libraries and library workers move beyond performativity and truly embrace and engage in equity-minded practices for the betterment of our communities?
