Session Description from ACRL: "Conversations about democracy, information access, and information distribution within communities continue to gain momentum in both academia and society as a whole. Academic librarians and LIS faculty can work with social justice issues in many ways. Learn how to shape and bring to the forefront these issues via teaching, scholarship, and work in local communities."
