Ethnic Studies in Academic and Research Libraries: A Three-Part Webcast Series

Join ACRL this April for an interactive three-part webcast series with authors and editors of ACRL’s Ethnic Studies in Academic and Research Libraries providing a platform for enhanced discussion around Ethnic Studies and librarianship. Participants will appraise library support for Ethnic Studies programs/departments, either personally or collectively based on presented models, and weigh the importance of enhanced support of these programs/departments to their library and patrons. We’ll discuss the differences between Ethnic Studies support and DEI work and will highlight why this is important. Webcast series registrants will receive a complimentary ebook copy of Ethnic Studies in Academic and Research Libraries.

Webcast One: Librarian Engagement and Ethnic Studies Departments (Wednesday, April 13, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Central): Panelists will discuss what and how liaison work with these departments began and how it continues, the challenges of working with Ethnic Studies, and what each librarian should know or do to enhance these relationships.

Webcast Two: Ethnic Studies Collections, Projects, and Programs (Wednesday, April 20, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Central): Panelists will highlight key ideas that were a part of their collections decisions and will define how these collections decisions are key to Ethnic Studies work, rather than DEI work.

Webcast Three: Collaboration, Identity, and Ethnic Studies (Wednesday, April 27, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Central): In the final discussion, panelists will focus on how their positionality may impact their Ethnic Studies collaborations.
