Ep 11 – Trans Inclusivity in Libraries and Research with Shelby Miller

Shelby Miller, a student in the MLIS program at UBC’s iSchool and an employee at Vancouver Public Library, joins us for a conversation about working at VPL as a non-binary trans employee, what’s wrong with the liberal utopian idea of intellectual freedom, and her thesis project on the information seeking habits of transgender individuals.

Shelby recently participated (with Allison, Hazel Jane Plante, Leah Tottenham, and syr) in a roundtable discussion for the BCLA Connect newsletter called “Not Cis in LIS: A Roundtable Discussion about Being Trans in Libraries,” and we were very glad to build on this conversation in person!
