UKSG webinar: “Knowledge justice on the internet: different ways of knowing and doing” |


Date: Thursday 25 June 2020

Time: 1200 BST (British Summer Time)

Duration: 45-60 minutes including Q&A 


  • Kira Allmann, University of Oxford
  • Anasuya Sengupta, Whose Knowledge?


The infrastructure, content, and design of digital tools and spaces increasingly underpin our many modes of both offline and online communication. This is especially true during this time of forced immobility in response to the coronavirus pandemic. But as the internet has become suddenly more central to our lives, this moment has also revealed the many ways in which internet access and use are unequal. In this talk, we frame the issue of internet inequality in terms of ‘knowledge justice’ — aspiring to equal participation, representation, and visibility of different forms of knowledge online. We explore how our experiences of the internet are the products of certain exclusive knowledges. And we share some of the exciting ways in which we can build an internet that is more inclusive, accessible, diverse, multi-directional, and just– an internet that is truly for and by us all.

General information:

This is a free webinar and open to all – Please note that advance registration is required. If you are interested, but unable to join the live event, please register anyway as a recording will be made available to all who register. If you have particular accessibility needs, please feel free to contact me on

Reaching Out – Engaging with Psychology Faculty

Connecting with academic faculty members is critical to ensuring the library is providing research materials that align with psychology curriculum and overall institutional mission. Staying connected with busy faculty can be challenging – especially today. Additionally, remote student instruction across a variety of resources can also be difficult. Hear from Karin Heffernan, Research & Learning Librarian | Associate Professor Liaison to Communications, Social Sciences & Psychology of Southern New Hampshire University about proven ways to engage. We’ll also provide an overview of instructional tools and materials that support the use of APA’s databases on EBSCO platforms.
