Abstract

As a librarian in a fast-paced legal profession, I have challenging days meeting our attorneys' legal research needs and balancing the responsibilities of supervising a strong team of researchers with all levels of experience and research skill.

Equally challenging and gratifying is the work of giving voice to inclusive efforts within our profession. Along the way, I have come across a few resources that keep me aware of the work of so many colleagues who are making their voices heard and showing the work that is necessary for nurturing diversity and inclusion in our profession.

I listen to podcasts that discuss current issues of social justice and internally examine how those issues play out within LIS. I also listen to some librarian podcasts but I am not aware of too many of these that have the specific goal of discussing the intersection of LIS and social justice.
