Librarians and teachers compile #PulseOrlandoSyllabus: 40+ pgs of LGBTQ resources [url]bit.ly/1XnHrVE[/url]
As a community of practice that works to advance research, learning, social justice, and the public good through digital library technologies, the Digital Library Federation mourns the loss of 50 lives at Pulse nightclub in Orlando on Latin Night, and are grieving with members of the LGBTQIA, Latinx, and Muslim communities.
We are heartened by the rapid response on the part of many in the digital library community to do what we do best—connect information to those who need it—through 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.
A time-stamped, PDF version of the #OrlandoSyllabus will be available soon, while the live document at bit.ly/orlandosyllabus will remain open to editing. All are invited to contribute relevant resources. For questions about the #OrlandoSyllabus, please contact Oliver Bendorf (@ohbendorf) or Lydia Willoughby (@willoughbrarian).
This is for those who may wish to understand the best way of teaching this subject as well as the shooting that happened in Charleston, SC.
