Kelly Giles; Alyssa Young – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
In academic libraries there has been growing interest in developing better ways to diversify collections, but STEM collections are sometimes overlooked. To better understand current practices and challenges, a survey was distributed to librarians with STEM collection responsibilities in the summer of 2021. Results from the survey indicated that…

Cay del Junco – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
In contrast to the traditional library instruction aim of finding and evaluating information, critical library pedagogies aim to teach students to analyze and challenge the power structures that determine what kind of information is deemed valuable. STEM librarians have been slower to take up these approaches than our colleagues with other…

Amani Magid; Ana Torres – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity (IDBE) are tenets discussed and developed in many universities and university libraries. Although there were studies on IDBE in libraries in general, the authors of this study were particularly interested in what Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) librarians were facing or…

Janis Joyce Shearer – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Academic and research libraries historically lack intentional engagement with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. This scoping review examines how academic and research library literature address social justice issues by engaging BIPOC with science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or medicine (STEMM) disciplines in…

Paige J. Dhyne; Alyssa Nance – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Historical and modern scientific thought is dominated by the English language, colonized science, patriarchal norms, and Westernized "ways of knowing." By making materials that lie outside that narrative discoverable (e.g., non-Western science, Indigenous/Aboriginal knowledge, women in science, etc.) we can assert that science is a…

Diana E. Park; Stephanie K. Ramos – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Science librarianship has barely scratched the surface when grappling with the injustice in our profession and the disciplines we support. Here we provide one example of how STEM librarians can work within the academy to resist systemic barriers and support students from marginalized communities. This paper will explore how librarians and…

Vieyra, Michelle L.; Weaver, Kari D. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
Students often come to college with a limited understanding of how to ethically incorporate and cite source materials in their writing, and this is commonly cited as the leading reason for plagiarism. Studies have shown that students in STEM are more apt to plagiarize as compared to students in the humanities or social sciences, so they are an…
