It All Adds Up: Contributing Climate Change Data to the Community (Patrick Milhoan, Univeristy of Notre Dame)

Building Connections Between Social Justice and Climate Change at Michigan State University Special Collections (Jessica Martin, Tad Boehmer, Ruth Ann Jones, Michigan State University)

These two papers focus on the ways that special collections materials can play an active role in conversations surrounding climate change, from illuminating the social and political implications of a changing climate to sparking conversations about ways to address these challenges. By using the rich diversity of materials at the MSU Special Collections, which have a special focus on activism and social justice materials, this session will encourage other special collections librarians to consider the ways in which their unique collections can foster conversations surrounding the effects and challenges of a changing climate.
