The editors articulate the following guiding questions for this collection: What does diversity work look like in librarianship? How are librarians implementing social justice elements into their daily work? How are librarians protesting and resisting in their everyday work? While in some chapters I may have longed for a little more theoretical grounding or a clearer awareness of how these chapters connect with existing literature, these guiding questions provide a clear through-line for the collection as a whole. This book is made for those seeking practical yet challenging approaches to incorporating social justice into library work.
