New Issue of IFLA Journal on Indigenous Librarianship

The most recent issue of the IFLA Journal, published by the International Federation Of Library Associations, is devoted to Indigenous librarianship issues:

"The IFLA Journal special issue on Indigenous Librarianship strives to position libraries and librarianship through an indigenous worldview and ways of knowing. Each article takes is own perspective on the topic, exploring issues such as colonization, reconciliation, representation and imagery, digital access, and resource management. The issue is the result of collaboration with IFLA Journal and the Indigenous Matters Section of IFLA."

Among the articles are:

  • Indigenous librarianship: Theory, practices, and means of social action
  • Transformation of library and information management: Decolonization or Indigenization?
  • Are we there yet? Visualizing Indigenous culture in today’s library
