Webinar - by me!

So in a few weeks I'm presenting a webinar for the Massachusetts Library System!

Disability on the Shelf – Looking for Representation in Library Collections
When asked, we all can think of a book, movie, or TV show that features a disabled character, but we don’t often think about the representation itself. With diversity and representation increasingly a part of our Collection Development practices, it is important we don’t continue to overlook this aspect. In this webinar, we invite participants to learn about disability, to gain an awareness of representation, and learn vocabulary and resources to evaluate materials.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Introduction to disability as a facet of diversity representation
  • Concepts of disability
  • Awareness of tropes, stereotypes, and representation in popular media
  • Vocabulary to discuss and evaluate materials
  • Resources
