Session Description

Over the course of the fall 2018 semester, Tisch Library at Tufts University held three pop up library events in the campus student center. Curated in collaboration with campus partners, each pop up library highlighted materials by and about people of a particular marginalized identity. These events enabled visitors to check out materials onsite and engage with library staff outside of the library set- ting, thereby reducing barriers to accessing information.
