Author(s):Velez, LaTesha; Villa-Nicholas, Melissa; Sweeney, Miriam E.
Subject(s):Critical data studies
Critical LIS pedagogies
Marginalized populations
Asset-based model
Abstract:This panel borrows from critical data approaches to explore the library as a site of interconnected information assemblages that incorporate (and consolidate) a range of technological, cultural, political, economic, and social arrangements. Critical data studies asserts data, like libraries and technology, are not neutral and value-free. Part one of the panel grounds the conversation in empirical research. Part two will be a discussion about how LIS education can further integrate and support critical data approaches to better prepare library workers to serve diverse communities, particularly those that are most vulnerable in this data environment.
