Women, Information and Libraries Special Interest Group at WLIC 2018: Collections, Ethics, Perspective, and Voice31 July 2018
During WLIC 2018 in August, we will explore questions of bias in library collections. Here is all the information you need to take part in that conversation.
Call for Papers - Theme: "Collections, Ethics, Perspective, and Voice: The Importance of Context" Around the world, libraries are beginning to address the ways in which established methods of collecting, cataloguing, preserving, sharing information about and giving access to resources perpetuates cultural bias, patriarchal thinking, racism, colonialism, among other issues and structures and therefore informs the collection itself.
Would you like to spend a few hours a month volunteering for the Women, Information, and Libraries SIG? We're looking for volunteers to help with social media, and potentially creating a blog for the SIG.
