Hack Your Library: Information Is Power, Find out Where It Is
17 April 2010
Tamiment Library

Some say we live in the Information Age – a lot of the time it can feel like we’re drowning in the stuff. Libraries exist to collect and organize information in print, electronic and other formats, and librarians are trained to know what’s in there. Librarians from the NYC collective of Radical Reference want to let you know how to educate yourself by taking advantage of specialized resources and collections in support of the struggle for a better world. From archives of anarchist and oppositional organizations to sources for corporate research, local information and government publications, to hidden wireless hotspots and other means of access to academic libraries, this workshop will provide pathways to information power.

Radical Reference is a collective of volunteer library workers who believe in social justice and equality. We support activist communities, progressive organizations, and independent journalists by providing professional research support, education and access to information. We work in a collaborative virtual setting and are dedicated to information activism to foster a more egalitarian society. The NYC collective has been active since the group's founding in response to the RNC Convention’s takeover of the city in 2004. Members have been involved with presentations and organizing for the NYC Anarchist Book Fair, Books Through Bars, the Grassroots Media Coalition, Indymedia and other grassroots activist groups.
