On Saturday, November 17, 2012, the Boston Radical Reference Collective hosted a free symposium, Practical Choices for Powerful Impact: Realizing the Activist Potential of Librarians, focused on how librarians actively work within and outside of information institutions for social change. The event began with a panel of librarians who use their skills to undertake consciousness-raising in libraries and within the LIS profession; actively participate in anti-oppression and empowerment work; and develop programming that supports the library as space and library as a means of liberation. More information about the symposium and its panelists is available here. Notes from the symposium break-out sessions are forthcoming.
A video-recording (in seven parts) of the Practical Choices for Powerful Impact panel is available below.
