The purpose of this seminar is to explore an important topic in library and information studies in depth — in all its intertwined historical, cultural, philosophical, and political aspects — through a graduate reading/discussion seminar. The topic varies each time the course is taught; this time around, we will focus on "libraries and community"
To piggyback on Jacob's comments, I just want to add that it seemed like McCook was defining disabilities as physical or visible disabilities. I kept looking for more about working with people who have invisible disabilities such as one or more of the myriad of learning disabilities, AD(H)D, MS, chronic pain, etc. Conflating all types of disabilities into one giant "disabilities" umbrella term is short-sighted and careless, at best, and recklessly indifferent, at worst.
