The new issue of Information for Social Change is out. It’s issue 24, and its theme is “Libraries & Information in the World Social Forum Context.
There hasn’t been much participation in the World Social Forum by U.S. librarians, including the progressives and socialists, though there has certainly been awareness and enthusiasm about the WSF in general among the Left. There has been a bit more activity in the WSF among librarians and information professionals in other countries. Members of the Information for Social Change collective are very interested, and have generated the current issue of the journal out of past activity and preparations for 2007 in Nairobi.
