Standing up and Sitting in: Libraries and Social Change

Sunday, June 27, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Washington Conference Center, Room 151B
Sponsored by the Anthropology and Sociology Section (ACRL)

Libraries have long promoted social causes and supported social movements, like the fight for civil rights and the women’s movement. And librarians are working to both preserve this grassroots history and to educate their communities about today’s social issues. For this program, activists, historians, librarians and other creative thinkers will discuss their research and involvement in promoting civic engagement and human rights, inviting conversation about how librarians can become engaged in social movements.

Speakers:
Kathleen de la Peña McCook, Distinguished University Professor, School of Library and Information Science, University of South Florida;
Cheryl Knott Malone, Associate Professor, School of Information Resources and Library Science, University of Arizona;
John Feffer, Writing Fellow, Provisions Library;
Moderator, Annie C. Paprocki, Anthropology and Sociology Librarian, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

A democratic society depends on an informed
and educated citizenry. ~ Thomas Jefferson

…the librarian of the future must be a
revolutionary…If Librarians are not
revolutionaries they have little future.
