      Abstract: Welcome to the May 2018 issue of C&RL News. Social justice issues continue to be a focus for many academic and research librarians, resulting in a variety of creative projects. Myra Waddell and Elena Clariza of the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa write about their use of “Critical digital pedagogy and cultural sensitivity in the library classroom” through two projects focusing on the unique cultures and history of Hawaii and the Pacific region.

  • Critical digital pedagogy and cultural sensitivity in the library
           classroom: Infographics and digital storytelling
    • Authors: Myra Waddell, Elena Clariza
      First page: 228
      Abstract: Academic librarians have a demonstrated interest in digital tools for teaching and learning and often provide support for these tools to their wider campus communities. Additionally, many librarians incorporate these tools into their own teaching in the information literacy classroom. However, little has been written about how digital tools can support critical information literacy and critical pedagogy specifically in library instruction. Eamon Tewell defines critical information literacy as instruction that asks “students to engage with and act upon the power structures underpinning information’s production and dissemination.”1 According to Paulo Freire, critical pedagogy acknowledges that education is a political action that can have an adverse effect on certain students.2 We define critical as self-reflexive and intentionally engaged with power structures.

    • Authors: Kai Alexis Smith
      First page: 234
      Abstract: We live in a politically polarizing climate and at a time when there is great economic and social unrest in the United States. Our current moment brings to my mind other periods in our nation’s history. First, the 1857 Dred Scott decision, when the Supreme Court decided that slaves were not U.S. citizens and could not sue for their freedom. So that even if a slave escaped to the North, he or she was still considered the property of the slave owner and must be returned.1 The second is in the 1960s, when the antiwar and civil rights movements occurred.2,3

  • Balancing influence in a shifting scholarly communication landscape:
           Creating library-owned, community-aligned infrastructure through
           individual, local, and community action
    • Authors: Sarah Wipperman, Shawn Martin, Chealsye Bowley
      First page: 244
      Abstract: With the acquisition and creation of scholarly communication platforms/infrastructure by major commercial entities, the balance of influence continues to shift. The ACRL/SPARC Forum at the 2018 ALA Midwinter Meeting brought together library stakeholders for a conversation about how the library community can reassert its influence to shape the open access publishing landscape. Panelists focused on 1) Individual action: “What can one person do'” 2) Local coordinated action: “How can one group or institution effect change'” and 3) Collective action: “How can libraries work together to provide sustainable alternatives'”1

  • Systematic reviews and evidence synthesis: Resources beyond the health
    • Authors: Megan Kocher, Amy Riegelman
      First page: 248
      Abstract: Asystematic review is a type of review that “seeks to systematically search for, appraise and synthesis research evidence,”1 including results published in grey literature. For decades, systematic reviews have been widely used to synthesize evidence in the health sciences. More recently, other disciplines, such as agriculture and the social sciences, have seen a rise in systematic reviews and related research methodologies. In response to this development, both Cornell University2 and the University of Minnesota Libraries3 have launched systematic review services that explicitly cater to non-health-sciences researchers at their institutions. Because it is recommended that librarians play a part on systematic review teams,4 there is a need for resources and skill development in this area.

  • Show them what you got: Throwing an epic open house
    • Authors: Emilee Mathews, Scott Stone
      First page: 253
      Abstract: Picture this: all of a liaison librarian’s students and faculty in one place, telling stories about how the library and its resources have been integral to their work, learning about resources and services they never knew about, and inspiring one another with their work and their own unique methods of working with the library. It sounds like an amazing dream, right' Two arts librarians at the University of California-Irvine (UCI) were able to turn their dreams into reality in October 2016, when they worked together to throw an epic library open house for their liaison areas.

  • Summer book club—a collaborative achievement: Using tech, time, and
           resources to engage students effectively
    • Authors: Annie Jansen
      First page: 257
      Abstract: During summer term, an academic library can be a very quiet place. With fewer students on campus, more online classes, and shorter library hours, there is often a lack of interaction between librarians and students. This is a missed opportunity to engage those students who are on campus.

  • Big impact, small effort: Implementing a low-cost, highly inclusive
           recognition program with huge results
    • Authors: Jill Wurm
      First page: 261
      Abstract: Like many organizations, the Wayne State University Libraries have historically struggled with a recognition system that had the potential to acknowledge people from all areas of the libraries, especially in a way that everyone felt like part of the process. Over the years, we tried things like recognition toolkits for managers, a dedicated recognition team, and formal awards ceremonies, but none were wholly embraced, and they quickly fizzled out as interest waned. Shrinking budgets added to the challenge, as funding for awards became harder and harder to obtain.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 264
      Abstract: As usually occurs, there is quite a variety of topics in the May issue of College & Research Libraries. However, there is interesting thread running through about half of the articles in the issue, speaking to the treatment of media, images, and music. Working on a college campus, it is impossible not to see how embedded media has become in people’s lives, as both consumers and producers. Creating and sharing videos through social media, posting to YouTube channels, and circulation of memes has become an everyday reality. It is a reality that even pervades spoken language in the real world with comments like “You’ve become a meme.”
