As librarians, we are good at teaching students how to find resources, but are we asking them to think about who is being represented in their citations or the citations of the sources they cite? The ‘politics of citation’ asks us to really look at who is represented and who is excluded in our bibliographies and scholarly conversations and to make a conscious effort for change. In this presentation, attendees will learn what the politics of citation looks like, why it is important, and how they can incorporate it into their instruction sessions.
