The Old and the Prudish


Our very own Tiffany Henry and two co-authors have published an article in the open access journal "In the Library With the Lead Pipe." This excellent article, "The Old and the Prudish: An Examination of Sex, Sexuality, and Queerness in Library of Congress Classification," is a must read for those interested in EDI work in critical cataloging. 

As quoted from the brief summary at the beginning of the article: "We aim for readers to realize what it means for structural inequity to exist in LCC, the harm that that structural inequity can impart, and to take a critical eye to the foundational classification used within numerous libraries, beyond the subject headings overlaying and masking that classification."

Welcoming Adult Patrons with (I/DD) Webinar


D(I/DD) You Know?: Welcoming Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to Your Library Webinar

Many programs and services focus on youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), but what resources are there for adults with these conditions? Whether you have already noticed adults with I/DD in your library or are looking to invite this audience in as new users, this webinar will help you to create a more inclusive and welcoming experience for all.

In this webinar, you'll learn some basic information about I/DD, common barriers to library use faced by adults with I/DD, how to identify useful community partners, and strategies for addressing potential challenges in welcoming the I/DD population to your library. By the end of the webinar, you should feel more confident in your ability to serve this vibrant community and have a list of actionable steps for welcoming them into your library.
