Abstract:In the second year of the Covid-19 pandemic, in a year of racial reckoning, with climate emergencies bearing down on the United States as never before, two sections of the MSLIS course “Libraries, Information and Society” at the University of Illinois wrote some very practical documents. They wrote to their own libraries—to libraries they hope to work at—to community organizations with collections—to their library school—and to policymakers who act on libraries. They wrote memos proposing real solutions to current problems as they defined them. New conditions demand new library directions. When the U.S. locked down for Covid-19, most libraries did not. They set aside the old normal and invented new services for their communities in crisis. In other words, libraries made a creative leap. These memos extend that.
