April Hathcock on Diversity and Inclusion in Libraries
Wednesday, April 27th from 2-3:30PM
Paley Library Lecture Hall

In a talk followed by Q&A, April Hathcock will discuss her recent research on diversity and inclusion in libraries. As Scholarly Communications Librarian at NYU Libraries, Hathcock educates the NYU research community on issues relating to access, ownership, and rights associated with the research lifecycle. Her research interests include cultural creation and exchange and the ways in which social and legal infrastructures benefit the works of certain groups over others, and she recently published “White Librarianship in Blackface: Diversity Initiatives in LIS” with In the Library with the Lead Pipe.
