Reference Librarianship & Justice: Critical Interventions – Book Launch Celebration and Discussions

March 8 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for a half day event to celebrate the recent publication of Reference Librarianship & Justice: History, Practice and Praxis.

METRO Library Council, along with the book’s editors, are hosting a dialogue and happy hour to continue the conversation on the history, application, and critical dimensions of reference services.

In the book and in this event, we stake out and explore the terrain of a critical, social-justice oriented, purposeful, and engaged reference practice. How and when do reference work and justice work overlap? What steps can be taken to further a reference practice that seeks justice? These questions, among many others, will be discussed through panels, lightning rounds, and breakout sessions.
