Microagressions: Small Actions That Are A Big Deal, Molly Higgins, Charlotte Roh

Library Publications

“Microaggressions” refer to those brief occurrences and encounters that subtly reinforce systems of power and privilege.

The authors explore biases in librarianship, particularly in bibliographic metadata, then present tools to engage librarians as well as faculty and graduate students.
