Description

The LibGuides Open Review Discussion Sessions (LORDS) Project works towards cultivating a community across California State University Libraries that provides space for critique, conversation, and criticality. In using critical race theory to acknowledge structures of publishing, libraries, and reference, this open review system works towards holding criticality to fight against the farce of neutrality within knowledge organizations. Based around LibGuides, this open review system is pertinent in thinking about how to push forward open ecosystems, bringing anti-racist and anti-hierarchal practices to our work internally through critically understanding and acknowledging the structures of publishing, libraries, and reference. In rethinking the idea of 'peer' and 'review' in this peer review system, the materials of what we we reference, how we reference, and who we reference are essential to understanding how to support a diverse, inclusive, and equitable scholarly communications environment. Furthermore, as a CSU-wide system, we are working towards establishing a people-to-people network that collectively holds ourselves accountable in self-reflective anti-racist practices, web usability best practices, critical information literacy, and more. This workshop would go through the workflows, culture, and process of the project, model an example, and end with an open forum of discussion.
