Working Class In The Library, 2017 Portland State University
Working Class In The Library, Robert Schroeder
Portland State University is an urban, access university. This means that students don’t face nearly as many academic barriers, such as entrance exams, in order to attend PSU as opposed to other colleges. Nevertheless, students do encounter many hidden barriers that affect their chances of getting into, staying at, and graduating from PSU—barriers associated with race, gender, citizenship, abilities, and the topic of this article—socioeconomic status. We need to acknowledge that all of these characteristics intersect and play out differently, so it’s hard to look at just one of these characteristics at a time. “Working class ...
Critical Librarianship, 2017 Pacific University
Libraries and archives are community spaces that acquire, organize, preserve, and make available resources for our patrons. Library workers connect people to these resources in various ways (technical services, reference, instruction, and more). It is noble and wonderful work, and it begs some interesting questions: is acquisition, organization, preservation, or dissemination a series of passive acts? Are libraries impartial spaces that give the real estate on their shelves to the words and ideas of others without judgment or context?

Critically Interrogating Oregon History In The Archives: Spanish Heritage Learners In The Pcun Records, 2017 University of Oregon
Critically Interrogating Oregon History In The Archives: Spanish Heritage Learners In The Pcun Records, David Woken
Critical librarianship has emerged over the past decade or so as one of the main thrusts of the library profession’s longstanding commitment to social justice. Growing from the application of insights from critical theory to libraries as an institution, the critical librarianship movement explores how hierarchies of power, particularly those around race, gender, sexuality, and class, shape our work, and how we can challenge our profession’s complicity in those hierarchies. Critical librarianship’s insights have been applied perhaps most thoroughly in the areas of cataloging and classification and, especially, information literacy instruction (Garcia, 2015). Critical information literacy instruction ...
Storytime Can Be Social Justice Time, 2017 Multnomah County Library
Storytime Can Be Social Justice Time, Natasha F. Campbell
Library storytimes are resources through which children can learn literacy skills, but they also have the potential for even greater impact. Families also use storytimes to gain valuable social interactions.
Libraries currently offer storytimes in response to community needs and values, and looking at storytime through a social justice lens gives library staff an opportunity to share and model valuable lessons in acceptance, inclusion, kindness, and empathy.
Resources exist to help storytime providers re-evaluate their storytimes and make incremental changes that can reap big benefits for attendees.
Critical Library Management: Administrating For Equity, 2017 Oregon College of Oriental Medicine
Critical Library Management: Administrating For Equity, Candise Branum, Turner Masland
Social justice and critical theory frameworks have been utilized to discuss library pedagogy and cataloging, but librarians have been slow in applying critical theory to how we actually manage libraries and lead staff. Management is not glamorous; rather, many still hold the traditional view of management as upholding hierarchical values. At its core, both libraries and management are about people, and library managers and administrators have the power to formulate and uphold the library’s values.
Libraries do not exist in a vacuum; we work to empower the communities we work with, and social justice issues directly impact our patrons ...

Letting Our Values And History Guide Us: Inspiration For Libraries From Myles Horton, Annie Downey
In the aftermath of the horrifying racist marches, violence, and murder at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville in August 2017, people across the country have looked to history and shared values to help them clear their heads and find ways to move America forward. In explaining his decision to take down a statue of Robert E. Lee from Duke University’s campus, president Vincent E. Price argued that removing the statue was a way to express Duke’s institutional values, including a “commitment to justice, not discrimination; to civil protest, not violence; to authentic dialogue, not rhetoric; and to ...

The component to ingest the data to OGP has evolved considerably, allowing better integration with GeoServer and ...

Emerging Roles: Academic Libraries Crossing The Digital Divide, 2017 The University of Southern Mississippi
Emerging Roles: Academic Libraries Crossing The Digital Divide, Kenneth Angell
For every advance of information and communication technology in the 20thand 21st centuries, there has been gap between those who can readily adopt and benefit from it and those who cannot. As higher education becomes increasingly enmeshed in Internet-based learning, academic libraries will need to maintain and even increase digital literacy and fluency instruction in spite of presumed reduced need. Furthermore, academic libraries themselves will need to examine their own status in the divide.
