C&RL News – November 2020

The November 2020 issue of C&RL News is now freely available online. Aubrey Iglesias opens this month’s issue by discussing the importance of increasing inclusive participation in the profession in her The Way I See It essay “Stop, reflect, replace.”

At the University of Florida, librarians performed analysis of their children’s and young adult literature collections in an effort to increase diversity and representation. Rachael Elrod and Brittany Kester write about the project in “Diverse BookFinder.”

Collections are also the focus of two additional articles this issue. Jennifer Kirk’s article “What is in those compact shelves?” details a project to increase the accessibility of government documents at Utah State University, and in our latest Scholarly Communication column, Sandra Aya Enimil discusses “Liberating digital collections.”

As different models of remote work continue for many during the pandemic, focusing on well-being and morale is more important than ever. Cynthia Hudson-Vitale and Rebecca Miller Waltz provide a variety of support strategies in their article “Caring for our colleagues.”

Suzanne Gray, Bill Marino, Amanda Nichols Hess, and Beth Wallis continue the focus on teaming as they discuss informal, exchange-style, partnerships between two academic libraries in their article “An exchange could do you good.”

Make sure to check out the other features and departments this month, including information on preparing World Book and Copyright Day celebrations and the latest Perspectives on the Framework column, focusing on “Constructing authority,” by Andy Foskey and Amanda Roper.
