Read Something, Watch Something, Do Something

Read Something, Watch Something

The University Library and Positive Space are collaborating in order to bring together a curated list of books, videos and more by Trans authors and on Trans research for Trans Awareness Month, accompanied by actions you can take to support a trans-inclusive environment.

Consider this list an invitation to participate in an asynchronous book club, with a variety of options. The broader community is welcomed to read and watch their choice of selections from this list, available for free to students, staff and faculty via the University Library.

Do Something

If you are inspired to act, learn how some librarians across Canada are speaking out against Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist (TERF) speech in libraries. Add your voice! Below are two more ways to get involved.

Increase Representation in Wikipedia

Wikipedia and other reference resources have lower levels of representation of notable trans people than of notable cis people. Take part in this month-long asynchronous Wikipedia-edit-a-thon by enhancing or creating Wikipedia pages featuring trans people. Taking part is simple: if you have never edited a Wikipedia page, here are some guidelines and instructions.

Eradicate Deadnaming and More

The University Library is working to eradicate disrespectful language from catalogue records.  Libraries across Canada follow controlled vocabularies and standards but when these standards are slow to remove offensive subject headings some libraries make decisions not to follow the instructions. The Cataloging lab is one space where this work is discussed & shared. Our University Library has made several changes. In order to create a more trans-inclusive campus environment we removed various subject headings and replaced them with:

  • Gender-nonconforming people
  • Transgender people
  • Two-spirit people

In addition to topical headings, the names of authors are controlled so as to be able to bring together variant forms/languages of a person’s name, which you can see in the metadata record for Malcolm X, for example.  Cataloguers can document personal and professional details about an author, including name changes.

Metadata records often include a great deal of valuable information about a person, yet libraries can also respect the wishes of creators by omitting information.  In the metadata record for Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama there is a Special Note informing cataloguers to leave her birthdate out of the metadata.

At this Library we will connect the links between names on request, and we will also remove links between works to avoid deadnaming, based on the direction of the author.  We welcome suggestions as to how we can build a welcoming and respectful space for research for everyone. If you are an author represented in our collection, let the University Library know how you would like to be represented by emailing: tgrover@ryerson.ca.

Open Access Week: Introducing RShare  – the Library’s new University Knowledge Mobilization Platform

 

Open Access week (Oct. 25 – Oct. 31), is a global event aimed at inspiring wider participation in making Open Access (the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need) a new norm in scholarship and research.

The Library is hosting two events introducing RShare – the Library’s new University knowledge mobilization platform and integrated research repository solution. 

 

Introducing RShare: the Library’s new University Knowledge Mobilization Platform

Date: Thursday, Oct. 28

Time: 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. 

Join the University Library for a virtual panel discussion about open access and knowledge mobilization strategies and the official launch of RShare –  the Library’s new University knowledge mobilization platform and integrated research repository solution.

A virtual panel discussion about RShare and its role in knowledge mobilization will include:

Carol Shepstone, Chief Librarian  – speaking on national and international open repository developments and collaborations

Brian Cameron, Head, Collection Services and Digital Initiatives Librarian – speaking about RShare, open deposit, and knowledge mobilization

Nora Mulvaney, Research Data and Liaison Librarian  – speaking in the role of data deposit in RShare and knowledge mobilization

Dialogues for Change: RE:Thinking Politics – POSTPONED

A Library Series in Partnership with the Democratic Engagement Exchange at the Faculty of Arts

NOTE: This event has been postponed until further notice

Overview:

The University Library and Democratic Engagement Exchange at the Faculty of Arts are partnering to deliver a year long series of programming for the university community that aims to instill and normalize participation in democratic processes and conversations. 

Civic literacy, and the literacy of listening, are guiding principles of the series and will be used to establish the framework through which conversations are grounded. The overall goal is to connect these key concepts  to our democratic institutions. The series will work to unpack power and politics, and deconstruct contentious language that inevitably arises in many discussions about politics. 

 

Event 1: The Question is Everything: Listening to the Data

Date: Wednesday, October 20

Time: 3 – 4:30 p.m.

 

Workshop Description:

One month after Canada’s 44th federal election things look much the same as they did prior to Sept. 20; however, there is still much to unpack and learn. Polling data and questions play a large part in elections. But, is election polling good or bad? Who gets polled and how? Who does it include and who does it leave out?  

Join us for a workshop that aims to demystify and deconstruct polls, gain insight into polling processes, and discuss how polls are skewed by creating an alternate poll.

 Listening to poll data reveals gaps about whose voices are included and whose voices get left out.

Registration opens Oct 6

 

 

What’s happening at the Library this fall

The start of the fall term once again looks different than previous years as we begin to gradually and safely open some onsite access to resources and activities. The University Library, will be phasing in onsite services, transitioning from offering primarily remote services and programs throughout the past year, to delivering Library services and programming in new, expanded, or revised ways to best meet multimodal delivery. We will continue to offer virtual services, as well as begin to open access to the Library building, onsite resources, study spaces, print collections and experiential learning and research labs.

The Library will continue to offer students multiple desktop computers, labs, study spaces, loan laptops, as well as provide strong wifi onsite.
