Building a curated list of resources for libraries and library workers in the resistance. Work in progress.
This resource is for everyone, but is targeted at information management professionals (librarians, archivists, records managers, curators, etc.). How do we help communities made (more) vulnerable by the new administration?
Please share with your networks, join the conversation on Twitter
, give feedback
, and keep resisting policies, laws, and trends that impact the free, unbiased, and accessible sharing of all types of information.
