Libraries need to be culturally safe places for learners that provide equitable access to resources and learning. Cultural relevance, responsiveness and social justice are dynamic concepts that incorporate many elements of the Library Learning Commons. Moving beyond relevance, we will explore the importance of being culturally responsive and justice-oriented in our practice.

Educators will look toward making culturally safe spaces for our learners by learning strategies for moving toward cultural relevance, responsiveness, and ultimately social justice in the Library Learning Commons.
