Social Justice & Library History Column

Dear blog readers,

I’m very excited to share that two of our blog volunteers, Ana Ramirez Luhrs and Tara Peace, are kicking off a new column here at LHRT News & Notes: Social Justice and Library History!

For the inaugural feature, Ana talks to librarian and film director Jill Baron.  Jill is the librarian for romance languages and Latin American, Latinx & Caribbean Studies at Dartmouth College.  She is also the co-director of the documentary film Change the Subject, a film about a group of Dartmouth students who challenged the Library of Congress anti-immigrant subject headings. Read the full transcript of their interview here:

Many, many thanks to Ana for conducting this interview and to Jill for being interviewed—what a wonderfully -inspiring conversation about a stand for social justice in the library field!
