Grinding the Gears: Academic Librarians and Civic Responsibility
Corporate encroachments are transforming universities into edu-factories which are designed to produce servants of the state rather than engaged citizens.

This panel will survey the revolutionary potential inherent in the open source movement, feminist porn collections, and critical information literacy.

Full paper will be published in a special issue of Urban Library Journal.
