Pecha Kucha: Occupy the Stacks: What Academic Libraries Can Learn from The People’s Library

Carey Toane, MLIS candidate – Western University

Tents, placards, human microphones…and books? That Occupy Wall Street had a library at all is something that all librarians should take note of – and find hope in. This presentation by an MLIS student and former New Yorker will incorporate the experiences of librarians who went down to lend a hand at Liberty Square –including the woman who started it all–to pinpoint some takeaways for academic librarians (hint: no more Ms. Nice Guy), slay a stereotype or two, and possibly even find a cure for that pesky apathy.
