I just returned from the 2019 Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) conference in Cleveland, which was an affirming, magical, and informative couple of days. Despite experiencing a lupus flare and ending up urgent care, I was still able to attend some amazing workshops, presentations, and panels like “Moving Beyond Race 101: Speculative Futuring for Equity” and “Social Justice as a Core Professional Value: One Library's Story”. I also had the opportunity to take part in a pre-conference for Diversity Fellows called “Taking Charge of Narrative”, which was an amazing experience. I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to connect, build relationships with, and learn from other Diversity Fellows from around the country!
As a way to report back to my colleagues who couldn’t attend, share ideas, and spark conversations, I made a mini-zine about what I learned this year at ACRL. It was a fun, creative, way to talk about what I learned at the conference when I returned to Cornell. Since I received several requests to purchase this zine, I thought I’d make it available here in exchange for a few dollars for postage or towards trauma therapy / healing process. If you’re interested in obtaining a copy, please e-mail me your mailing address.
In solidarity and care,
