Now on Twitter

Radical Reference is now tweeting. Well actually we haven't tweeted anything yet, but the plan is to feed links from our website out to the Twittersphere. (Is it wrong to use that word, like saying "webinar" is wrong?) Our account is RadReference, as some med school student already had radref.

When Reference is Radical: Rad Ref in Make/Shift

The Fall/Winter 2009/2010 issue of make/shift: Feminisms in Motion contains a sort of mutual interview with Radical Reference librarians Emily Drabinski and Lia Friedman, who is make/shift's staff librarian.

They talk about how integral their librarian and activist identities are to each other.

Resistance Behind Bars, new book by Victoria Law

I don't think I ever got around to this when Vikki's book first came out, but Alison Lewis's nice review in the Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) Newsletter reminded me to do it now.

Basically I'm saying, "Yay! Radical Reference helped someone write a book!"
