thread 6 Threaded Spouts
About me: I'm a Fiipino-American academic librarian... A journeyman in many aspects, (but when do we stop learning? I hope not at all.)

This account's foci will be as described in my main bio + EDI (sometimes all at once!) Conference spouting will end up here, too.

"While most of the institutions call the requirement digital literacy, it is closer to what has often been termed media literacy with a focus on understanding and identifying accurate online news sources, misinformation, opinion and advertising. "

"...the human remains used in the book’s binding no longer belong in the Harvard Library collections, due to the ethically fraught nature of the book’s origins and subsequent history."

"New York’s public libraries are home to more than books: they provide shelter and care, and many offer just about every social service imaginable..."

Remember, colleagues. impact > intent.

"Faculty, staff, administrators, and students experience varying degrees of power and privilege on institutional campuses; their powers and privileges often relate to their professional role."

This.
Read aBannedBook @RetiredLibrarian
Librarians are educators. We do more than promote books and reading. Academic librarians teach information literacy to students. I was a tenured associate professor when I retired. I can't turn off my need to teach. I'm grateful to have a platform here for the Spoutible @BannedBookClub 💙💛💙

And why a vocal group of "Real Americans" are going after our libraries...
Sheilah Hayden @Tsquared2001
Reading as Resistance!
So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.

Pullquote from Nicollette:

"To echo sentiments from DeAnn and Jess, it is liberatory to release the able-bodied, cis-hetero, white gaze. "

I have two former friends that work at Headstart who screamed all over Facebook that they were against the mandate & that masks were a form of child abuse. Apparently exposing the little kids under their charge to Covid19 was not a thing nor abuse. #RememberTheLost 💛

As Liz shares in this Literary Hub article, attempts to ban books in the US are not new. Attempts have a long history.
