A space for librarians, archivists, and info professionals to share their experiences with microaggressions within the profession.
If I learned anything at CARL and CIL this past week, it’s that sometimes you just gotta put your project out there. While this is still in development, I think it’s more important that POC librarians & archivists have a place to share their experiences with microaggressions in the field. Please contribute and/or share this resource if you can.

"In late March, she shared the news that she had accepted a job at Whittier College in LA. Her note said, "I am going to help them develop their digital liberal arts program. I’m extremely happy! I have a job I’m going to love in a city I adore. Life doesn’t get better than this.""
We at Whittier College are deeply saddened by this loss. Out hearts go out to Adrianne’s friends and family.
I have this rather grand vision of myself as Morpheus from the Matrix. “Here, students, are two pills. Take the Red Pill and your life will never be the same again, the world of information will look fundamentally different, and there will be no turning back. Take the Blue Pill and you’ll probably pass your term paper.”

A few of the fine folks from the CARL 2014 Conference on Librarian Wardrobe. Sadly, no photo could do justice to Peter Hepburn’s immaculate blazer and tie.
Also, my head is enormous. I mean that non-metaphorically.
Had the pleasure of hanging out with these people IRL at CARL.
