Change the Subject

The documentary Change the Subject explores the ways that politics can enter a library catalog, and shows what libraries can do about it. The film’s runtime is one hour, but we trust that it will be thought provoking, and so have allowed time afterward for discussion. We'll have coffee and desserts, but feel free to bring your lunch. [Note that this event has shifted to an earlier time.] From the film’s producers:

Copper-plate engraving of a "muscle man" from Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564). De humani corporis fabrica libri septem (Basel: Johannes Oporinus, 1543).
