Hack Your Library - Radical Reference workshop at the 4th Annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair

The NYC Collective of Radical Reference will have a table at the 4th Annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair, and will present a workshop on Saturday at 12:45
Workshop description from program:

Some say we live in the Information Age – a lot of the time it can feel like we’re drowning in the stuff. Libraries exist to collect and organize information in print, electronic and other formats, and librarians are trained to know what’s in there. Librarians from the NYC collective of Radical Reference want to let you know how to educate yourself by taking advantage of specialized resources and collections in support of the struggle for a better world.

2nd call!!! Rad Ref panel in Sacramento for CLA in November

Hi all,
I was recently contacted by someone at CLA who wants us to do something at their next conference. Is anyone interested in doing a panel with me? I'm willing to do the legwork (filling out the proposal etc), but think it would be WAY better with more than just me yammering away. You could tie this in with a nice SoCal vacation, come on, it'll be fun and panels are a great way to get your feet wet if you haven't presented much. Deadline is April 17th though, so get in touch if you are interested.
Below find his letter:
