C&RL News – October 2020

The October 2020 issue of C&RL News is now freely available online. We start out this month with the latest installment of our International Insights column, featuring perspectives on the academic library’s role in resisting and eradicating systemic inequalities to advance “Multiple ways of knowing.”

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our campuses as we move solidly into fall term. Carissa Tomlinson and Danya Leebaw of the University of Minnesota offer “Reflections” on the pandemic from the perspective of middle management.

In this issue’s The Way I See It essay, Melanie Hulbert, L. Katherine Smith, and Dustin Fife of Western Colorado University write about ways they cultivated relationships for resilience in “Activating agency in the time of COVID-19.”

This month’s Scholarly Communication column features a look at “New dimensions in data management” by Jamie Wittenberg, while Lindsay Guarnieri, Tracey Kry, and Emily Porter-Fyke write about performing website usability testing with eye-tracking software in their ACRL TechConnect article “The eyes have it.”

Sara Sharun and Erika E. Smith discuss ways partnerships between librarians and educational developers can promote individual and institutional change in their article “Educational development partnerships and practices.”

Make sure to check out the other features and departments this month, including an overview of three paid academic library internship programs for high school students, a look back at teaching a graduate student workshop in China, and recent ACRL Board of Directors’ actions.
