RECOMMENDED: #PulseOrlandoSyllabus, #CharlestonSyllabus, and the public good

The Digital Library Federation (DLF) has posted a spotlight item, “#PulseOrlandoSyllabus, #CharlestonSyllabus, and the public good,” discussing the collective syllabus building movements that have followed in the wake of public tragedies and inviting editorial contributions to #PulseOrlandoSyllabus.

We are heartened by the¬†rapid response on the part of many in the digital library¬†community to do what we do best‚ÄĒconnect information to those who need it‚ÄĒthrough the collectively built¬†#PulseOrlandoSyllabus¬†(collocated with #OrlandoSyllabus), to which¬†countless librarians and educators have¬†contributed¬†nearly 40pp of¬†information resources and teaching materials in 24 hours.

The guide is meant to compile research and learning resources focusing on the lives, experiences, and intersections of LGBTQIA people and people of color, and is organized into such categories as scholarly books, archival collections, fiction and poetry, comics, zines, plays, podcasts, LIS resources, mental health resources, resources for K-12 school communities, and more.
