#CRITCHS: Critical Librarianship in Book and Serial Acquisition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The free-form twitter community #critlib was created to host twitter chats about critical pedagogy, but has grown to address a wide variety of issues including assessment, gender in RDA, and many other issues.
This session will provide an introduction to #critlib and critical practice in librarianship, and then focus the discussion on how these practices can apply specifically to acquisitions and related fields.
The session will be highly interactive and engage the audience in discussions such as: how personal identities impact our acquisitions work, the uncomfortable praxis of acquisitions work, and how we can create space for deep and reflective conversations.
