Academic libraries are cultural institutions with massive resource and operational footprints. By orienting our missions purposefully toward information and economic justice, we have the capacity to reshape the scholarly information landscape while positively impacting the ability of individual learners and researchers to traverse it. This briefing explores the capacity of libraries and allied institutions to leverage individual and collective action to reduce the inextricably linked information and economic inequalities our users face. The session will examine academic library practice through the lenses of information equity and economic justice, highlighting actions libraries and allied organizations can take in pursuit of increased resource parity and greater freedom from the entrenched information-for-profit systems that threaten our own budgets.
