Libraries have long promoted social causes and supported social movements, like the fight for civil rights and the women's movement. And librarians are working to both preserve this grassroots history and to educate their communities about today's social issues. For this program, activists, historians, librarians and other creative thinkers will discuss their research and involvement in promoting civic engagement and human rights, inviting conversation about how librarians can become engaged in social movements.

Speakers:
Kathleen de la Peña McCook, Distinguished University Professor, School of Library and Information Science, University of South Florida;
Cheryl Knott Malone, Associate Professor, School of Information Resources and Library Science, University of Arizona;
John Feffer, Writing Fellow, Provisions Library;
Moderator, Annie C. Paprocki, Anthropology and Sociology Librarian, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

And breakfast will be provided!
