Inclusion: Using Feminist Pedagogy in Librarianship
This session will discuss what feminist pedagogy is and how it can be applied to library work.  As an educational approach, feminist pedagogy is a way to provide inclusion and social justice in libraries.  We will talk about how it can be used specifically in library instruction and reference interactions.  The session will include definitions, descriptions, examples of feminist pedagogy, hands-on activities, and a discussion of how feminist pedagogy can cultivate learning and social change.

Legal Inclusion for All
Utah courts are flooded with legal filings from self-represented parties.  The Utah Committee on Legal Inclusion (UCLI) is teaming up with the Utah State Library to educate librarians and provide a statewide marketing program designed to educate librarians in the state about use of the Online Court Assistance Program (OCAP). The goal is to increase citizens’ access to justice and to help self-represented persons.  It is designed so that non-lawyers can prepare the necessary documents to file in Utah Courts.  Additionally, by advertising your library as a resource for use of the OCAP forms, you can increase the relevance of your library in your community.   UCLI’s goals of increasing access to justice and ensuring that all citizens of Utah have access to the courts is also achieved given that many marginalized populations use local libraries as their primary resource for information, internet and other valuable information.

Collection development outside of the packaged sets from vendors often seems daunting; how can libraries purchase to best serve diverse constituencies? This session will provide insight on how to expand the relevancy of your collection.
