Abstract:The paper presentation introduces a doctoral curricular model of social justice scholarship in library and information science (LIS). The case-study highlights global implications of a “Social Justice and Inclusion Advocacy” concentration in the communication-and-information college-wide doctoral program in the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alabama. Actualities and potentialities of this unique progressive collaboration are elaborated to mobilize LIS worldwide in expanding its traditional definition, scope, representation, and relevance in the 21st century. It represents global possibilities of influencing newly emerging LIS educators, practitioners, administrators, and others to integrate a spirit/ethics of social justice in their work/practice/scholarship.
