Conversations about democracy, information access, and information distribution within communities continue to gain momentum in both academia and society as a whole. Academic librarians and LIS faculty can work with social justice issues in many ways. Learn how the speakers shape and bring to the forefront these issues via their teaching, scholarship, and work in local communities. Areas addressed include: community informatics, information literacy-focused service learning, and community outreach. Co-sponsored by EBSS and Social Responsibility Round Table (SRRT).
