Join us as we examine librarianship, individually and collectively, through a critical lens. Emily Drabiniski, one of the leading voices in the Critical Librarianship movement, will share the history of #critlib and perspectives on the intersections between librarianship and social justice, delving into topics ranging from diversity and inclusion to information literacy instruction and metadata. Next, the workshop will feature a selection of Lightning Talks by regional librarians involved in the #critlib community, followed by small group conversations.
