Session 2.6 B Juried Papers - Underserved Groups, Libraries, and Information Literacy: Homeless LGBTQ Youth and Public Libraries: Meeting at Our Margins

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using homeless LGBTQ youth as an example, this presentation addresses the need for information professionals to work together with those we identify as different from ourselves to create shared and mutual understanding and review some of the barriers to this understanding, in order to look closely at the flow of information, what impedes that flow, and how to remove that impediment, so the information can be universally accessed.
