Radical Reference is a collective of volunteer library workers who believe in social justice and equality. We support activist communities, progressive organizations, and independent journalists by providing professional research support, education and access to information. From 2004 until around 2012, the NYC collective of Radical Reference met regularly, put on events, and participated in activist communities.
Do you want to meet and collaborate with other anti-authoritarian library workers and LIS students in the NYC area? Come to the Radical Reference NYC local collective's first meeting in more than five years. For now our plan is to focus on whether there is interest in reviving the collective and if so, what that would look like.
