The academic library division of MLA, ACRL-MD, is partnering with the Maryland Information Literacy Exchange (MILEX) to bring keynote speaker, Emily Drabinski to our region. One of the leading voices in the Critical Librarianship movement, Drabinski is the Coordinator of Library Instruction at Long Island University, Brooklyn, and an adjunct faculty member at Pratt Institute. She is a prolific author, editor, and speaker on social justice and librarianship and she is an active voice in the #critlib social media community. Drabinski will share the history of the #critlib movement and perspectives on the intersections between librarianship and social justice, delving into topics ranging from diversity and inclusion to information literacy instruction and metadata. 
Next, the workshop will feature a selection of Lightning Talks by regional librarians involved in the #critlib community. Lightning Talk speakers will lead workshop attendees into smaller affinity group conversations designed to focus on the areas within the wide span of librarianship, including public and school libraries. Join us as we examine our practice, individually, and collectively, through a critical lens.
