radical reference: answering questions from those who question authority
Radical Reference is a service provided by library workers from all over the United States to give assistance to demonstrators at the Republican National Convention in New York City. We will answer your reference questions via blog, e-mail, chat,
and in the street.
Ask your question by filling out a form. Your privacy will be protected.
Street: Look for librarians wearing baseball caps (tan with a blue bill) with an "I" on it if you need legal info, subway directions, a bathroom, or have any other questions.
News: We have a one-hour workshop prepared and available to indymedia journalists on fact check-ing and evaluating sources for accuracy, authority, coverage, currency, and objectivity. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a session.
Librarians: Write email@example.com to volunteer your services. Law and News librarians and those who can read & write other languages especially sought, but all will be put to work.
