Libraries Act. Respond. Transform: The ART of Empowerment



Session, poster and roundtable proposals are under review by the conference planning committee. We are pleased to present a full slate of 28 programs as well as a diverse group of posters and roundtables to choose from on Oct. 27.


The conference program will kick off with a great keynote: New York University scholarly communications librarian April Hathcock, who educates the campus community on ownership, access and rights in the research lifecycle. She received her J.D. and LL.M. degrees in international and comparative law from Duke University School of Law and her M.L.I.S. from the University of South Florida. Before entering librarianship, she practiced intellectual property and antitrust law for a global private firm. Her research interests include diversity and inclusion in librarianship, cultural creation and exchange, and the ways in which social and legal infrastructures benefit the works of certain groups over others. She is the author of the article “White Librarianship in Blackface: Diversity Initiatives in LIS” and the blog At the Intersection, which examines the intersection of feminism, libraries, social justice and the law.

Conference registration opens in late June; more information about preconference activities will be available at that time.
