To best serve today's patrons, librarians need a broad understanding of the wide spectrum of the arts and popular culture that are of interest to our users. From gaming to comics to cosplay to streaming video, librarians are becoming both advocates of and experts in these non-traditional collections. The PopCult SIG aims to engage librarians in a dialogue on the wide range of cultural productions and practices that are redefining library collections and the resulting changes in practice in librarianship. We welcome librarians from all types of libraries to join the discussion.Join the Pop Culture email list! Click here: https://goo.gl/QFXam1
