Diversifying Citations (and Perspectives)

Date:
Thursday, June 29, 2023
Time:
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Location:
Zoom
Cost:
Free

This session explores racial bias in reference lists and notes, what has come to be known as the "politics of citations". Since library catalogues and databases (generally) do not provide metadata on race, gender, and ethnicity, how is it possible to discover multiple perspectives? Learn about how academic libraries are organized and strategies to develop more inclusive citation practices.

Session outcomes:

  • Describe how academic libraries are organized following the Library of Congress
  • Articulate how the “politics of citations” influences scholarship
  • Develop strategies for finding sources that reflect multiple perspectives
