Library Journal – The 2016 one-day conference of the Library Association of the City University of New York (LACUNY), “Race Matters: Libraries, Racism, and Antiracism,” held May 20 at Brooklyn College, was ambitious in scope and informative in practice. Speakers, panel discussions, facilitated dialogs, and round tables took a broad look at academic librarianship through a lens of critical race theory, examining issues of race as they exist in the larger system of social and economic control. Mentioned in the write-up is the presentation of “On Structures and Self-Work: Locating Anti-Racist Politics in LIS,” by David James Hudson, learning and curriculum support librarian at the University of Guelph, Ontario, and Gina Schlesselman-Tarango, instructional services and initiatives librarian at California State University, San Bernardino.
