Description :

The ALA Spectrum Doctoral Fellows have developed an online user-centered resource, The Social Justice Collaboratorium (SJC). In tandem with an ALISE poster, this session seizes the opportunity to gather practitioners and educators doing social justice (SJ) work within their institution/research. An SJC overview is followed by a conversation about how people approach social justice--and ways that institutions have either denied, co-opted or morphed initiatives— through discussing 1) What is Social Justice?, 2) What aspects of SJ are most needed in LIS?, 3) What are model programs or initiatives?, and 4) How does SJ move forward in LIS?
