NEW LIBRARIANSHIP SYMPOSIA SERIES: FALL 2021 https://scholarcommons.sc.edu/
The New Librarianship Symposia Series is sponsored by The University of South Carolina, MIT Press, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions, the U.S. Library of Congress, the British Library, KB National Library of the Netherlands, OCLC, URFIST de Bordeaux, Enssib, the Black Caucus of the American Library Association, the American Indian Library Association, and Gigabit Libraries Network.
This four-part virtual symposia series will explore community-centric approaches to librarianship that push practitioners and scholars into innovative directions. Much has occurred in the last decade that has highlighted the importance of recognizing how institutional oppression and systems of power, global pandemics, and international perspectives inform librarianship. We are seeking abstract submissions for ideas and approaches that can guide the field over the next decade.Symposia sessions will be streamed live, free of charge, and with efforts made to meet accessibility needs.
