About Your Art Librarian

Black Heart on OpenMoji 13.1 My librarianship is steered by a commitment to social justice issues within the field of information studies and academia. I am a member of the Intersectional Feminism & Art Special Interest Group of ARLIS NA, and I closely follow discussions and issues that arise within Critlib (short for "critical librarianship"). CritLib is a movement of library workers dedicated to bringing social justice principles into libraries, recognizing that we work in systems that favor white supremacy, capitalism, and a range of structural inequalities. In my free time, you'll catch me practicing wobbly ceramics, walking near the sea, or hanging out with my foster pup, Wylie, at local coffee spots!
