1: Michigan State University Libraries; 2: Rice University Fondren Library

The DLF Climate Justice Working Group formed in 2021 to build community among digital library practitioners seeking to learn and organize around climate justice initiatives. We meet virtually in-between Forums, and we invite current and new participants at the Forum to join us for a conversation around initiatives and build connections between colleagues seeking to advance climate work in libraries. During this meeting we will:
1) Provide updates on IMLS grant awarded to the CLIR DLF to create a climate resiliency training for library professionals and gather ideas from participants.
2) Plan additional Climate Justice Working Group activities, discussions, and initiatives.
3) Share on ideas and information about climate work in libraries.
4) Discuss how to get involved with working group.
