Libraries & The Status Quo

This page is dedicated to collecting documents that address the role of libraries as agents of structural racism; or conversely positive examples of diversification.

We Need Diverse Books

Reflecting the Lives of Aboriginal Women in Canadian Public Library Collection Development

Thoughts:

Libraries codify culture.

How do/can collection development policies maintain/dismantle white supremacy?

How can public libraries create a greater culture of tolerance/love/respect?

About joanniemercedes

Lazy. Lover. Recovering nihilist. As a librarian I am concerned with the role of public libraries as complicit agents of structural racism. As a person I am interested in de-stigmatizing everything human, talking racism to death, dabbling in american history, favoring german expressionism; and excelling at slacking.
