Librarians and Archivists to Palestine

Librarians and Archivists to Palestine | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"We recently spoke to Vani Natarajan, a librarian at Barnard College in New York City, about her trip as part of a delegation of librarians and archivists to Palestine. The librarians and archivists’ solidarity statement details how they respected the call for boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) against Israel during their visit.

Their zine and blog document the lighter side of their trip — check out the page on the cats they came across — as well as the necessary education on how information access and erasure have become a means of war and occupation within the Palestinian context. They “bore witness to a culture of resistance, which in all its myriad forms resoundingly refutes the notion that Palestine does not exist.”

Librarians and Archivists to Palestine

A delegation of librarians, archivists, and other information workers to Palestine in June/July 2013 (RT @Librarians2Pal: We've launched our crowdfunding campaign.

 

How can archivists and library workers in Palestine and other parts of the world connect as individuals and within a larger context of ongoing colonization and imposed isolation? This summer, we will begin to find out. A group of 20 librarians and archivists from the US, Canada, UK, and Sweden will travel to Palestine to meet with our colleagues in library- and archive-related projects and institutions and apply our experience in the form of skillshares and other types of joint work.
