“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
I've been trying to balance an already-overwhelming semester with my desire to help the library and OWS in any way that I can. I would really like to figure out ways to help answer questions from afar. Is twitter the way to go? (I helped a bit with a twitter q&a at the USSF and that seemed accessible...) Some kind of chat? Dial-a-librarian? How can we librarians help the folks who are representing so many of us?
The NYC Radical Reference collective will be meeting at the People's Library at Zuccotti Park Friday, October 7th at 6pm in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. We'll be doing street reference, and helping the library and the people as are able.
Please bring plastic tubs for the library and sleeping bags, blankets, warm clothes and love for the folks of Occupy Wall Street.
It was really amazing to be a part of Occupy Wall Street today. I am proud to support this movement as a member of the PSC-CUNY, a CUNY student who walked out on my homework for a day, and as a person who supports this site as a place for conversations about a better world.
