CONFERENCE: People of Color in Library & Information Science (POCinLIS) Summit

July 21, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Save the Date! People of Color in Library and Information Science Summit. Loyola Marymount University, Friday, July 21, 2023

The People of Color in Library & Information Science (POCinLIS) Summit will take place on Friday, July 21, 2023 from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm PST at Loyola Marymount University. Registration is free.

The mission of POCinLIS Summit is to create a productive and brave space for people of color, especially women and marginalized identities, working in the information sector. Information workers will have the opportunity to explore their work in LIS as POC and their intersecting identities as BIPOC. This summit invites participants to challenge and interrogate their roles and actions as information workers. This summit aims to collectively establish rules of engagement and discourse, acknowledging that dominant narratives may be disrupted. This space is created to support the research of POC librarians and create a network of POC information workers for future collaboration and self-care.

Thank You For Being A Friend

The theme Thank You For Being A Friend invites submissions that challenge what is acceptable to present upon in LIS. As POC moving through the pandemic and returning to work, we are being called upon to accomplish a lot, often with very little time to reflect and develop our practice. This year, think of the summit as a supportive counterspace for reflection, exploration, commiseration, and experimentation among trusted colleagues. We ask you to share what you are doing, what you are thinking about, and what you need support for in this moment as a summit submission.

The POCinLIS Summit is a space for collaborative conversations that explore our passions and interests. We welcome submissions that are unique, challenging, and unorthodox in other LIS spaces. Library students and library employees of all kinds are invited to submit proposals.

Registration opens May 2024

This conference is hosted by the William H. Hannon Library at Loyola Marymount University.
