Building Bridges Article
As I wrote in the previous blog post, I co-presented at the National Diversity in Libraries Conference this past August. I was delighted to find out that the lovely April Hathcock referenced my talk "Diversity and Anti-Oppression Training: from awareness to action" in the "Building Bridges at NDLC" article, which is a recap of highlights of the conference. Here is the excerpt:
"In the session on “Library Diversity Training: From Awareness to Action,” librarian Kristyn Caragher and head of the undergraduate library and professor of library administration Lori Mestre, both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, centered their work on an intersectional approach to anti-oppression work, taking into account the multiple ways in which oppression functions. (For more on Caragher’s work, please see her workshop materials)."
I am so honored and humbled to have my work recognized and published in the Library Journal, which for those who are unfamiliar, is an eminent journal within the field of library and information science! Thank you!
