Are you a Revolting Librarian?

Recently I found a used copy of Celeste West's Revolting Librarians online. It is an interesting very-1970s collection of essays that sparked the social responsibilties librarianship movement. It was one of the books though that helped challenge/ shape my own library philosophy as well. Some activist librarians revisited this in the Revolting Librarians Redux.

If this social responsibilities stream interests you, you might be inetersted in ALA's Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) or the Progressive Librarians Guild, which I noticed is interested in forming student chapters.
