ISBN: 978-1-63400-120-5

Currently there are very few books that contain any content on trans and gender diverse* experiences within library and information science (LIS). Trans and Gender Diverse Voices in LIS will center the lived experiences of trans and gender diverse people in LIS work and education. All authors and editors will be self-identified trans and gender diverse people.

*We use “trans and gender diverse” to describe any self-identified non-cisgender identities, including nonbinary, agender, genderfluid, genderqueer, and others, as well as genders that do not fall within the Western system, such as two spirit, māhū, and others.
