We’re so excited to share our 2018 Program with you! We had what we think is a record number of proposals this year and from them have chosen a program we hope will both educate and inspire you. From a panel discussion between librarians and publishers on diversity, inclusion and equity in scholarly publishing and acquisitions, to the triumphs and tribulations of leading workplace culture change, to deciphering and visualizing data, there’s a little something for everyone.

- LACUNY Institute 2018: Librarianship in Challenging Times: Advocating for Intellectual Freedom, Democracy, and Equity
Call for Proposals
The LACUNY Institute is an annual, one-day conference open to LIS professionals, students, and the general public. It is organized by the Library Association of the City University of New York (LACUNY), and although geared to academic librarians, it strives to have broad relevance to the profession.
In a time of a polarized political climate, economic uncertainty, and social inequity, how can libraries actively support themselves and their communities? How can we advocate for ourselves and for communities we serve? What is our role in upholding democratic values of intellectual freedom, free speech, and free expression? How can we resist fascism, misinformation, and censorship? How can libraries foster inclusivity and empower the disenfranchised?
