Critical Librarianship is about applying principles of social justice to our work in libraries. Critical Librarianship is rooted in critical theory, which attempts to identify, examine, and disrupt inequitable systems. It begins when we recognize that libraries and library work are not neutral spaces, and supports critical thinking, information literacy, lifelong learning, and inclusive and ethical publishing.
Presenter: Samantha Walsh, MLS, MA, Manager of Information & Education Services at the Levy Library, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, will give us an introduction to critical librarianship and how to practice it in all libraries, ending with a focus on academic and health sciences libraries.
Sign on starts at 9:30 AM. MEDLI Business Meeting to follow 11 AM—12PM.
Co-presented by Long Island Library Resources Council
