Using the Anti-racism Digital Library and Thesaurus to Understand Information Access, Authority, Value and Privilege

Title

Using the Anti-racism Digital Library and Thesaurus to Understand Information Access, Authority, Value and Privilege

Description

The new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy, specifically the six threshold concepts about information mirror the experiences of the author as a researcher studying the representation of anti-racism in bibliographic information systems. Anti-racism, in general, is a great concept to use when teaching information literacy and the paper discusses how antiracism information literacy can be taught and learned as part of theological and religious studies education. Since the conference is in Atlanta, the article begins with two stories about the scholar Dubois who lived there and that illustrate some of the IL concepts discussed.
